Laval police has recently confirmed that the Sûreté du Québec has arrested a suspect on early Friday, who brusquely fled an overnight traffic stop by Laval police, i.e. an incident that got off-center when a police cruiser was hit and a Laval officer fired two gunshots. Constable Franco Di Genova, from Laval force, confirmed that there were no injuries during the incident that took place at 2:15 a.m.
Constable Di Genova revealed that the 20-year-old suspect was arrested at about 5:25 a.m. by officers from the Lachute SQ detachment. He explained that even though Laval police did not have any record of him, “he is known to other police forces,” where “he has cases pending.” The constable elucidated that the incident took place at a routine traffic stop, where patrol officers encountered a 2003 Pontiac Sunfire on along Dussault Ave. near Cartier Blvd. W., in the Laval-des-Rapides sector near Highway 15. The car’s lights were off when the officers pulled it over, which had a male driver and two women.
