Cape Breton Post - - News | Canada -

MONTREAL — A 15-year-old girl is re­cov­er­ing in hos­pi­tal af­ter be­ing shot in the stom­ach shortly af­ter mid­night Tues­day morn­ing. Police say the girl was with friends out­side a metro sta­tion in Laval, north of Montreal, when she was hit. Const. Franco Di Gen­ova says her in­juries are not life threat­en­ing and she’ll likely re­main in hos­pi­tal for two to three days.

Police say a dis­pute among sev­eral peo­ple pre­ceded the shoot­ing but add they don’t be­lieve it was con­nected to street gangs.

Di Gen­ova says in­ves­ti­ga­tors haven’t been able to ques­tion the vic­tim yet but have spo­ken with her friends who are co-op­er­at­ing.

He says police have not made any ar­rests.
