The other victims are two men and a woman ranging in ages from 25 to 32. One of the men and the woman were seriously injured, while the other man sustained minor injuries. Police say none of their lives are in danger.

Investigators from the Montreal police's major crimes unit were on the scene meeting with witnesses and trying to get more information. 

Police say so far, they have no motive and no suspects.

Corrections

  • An earlier version of this story stated the shooting happened inside and outside the Semolina restaurant. In fact, the shots were fired near a reception hall and the restaurant next door.
