One man is dead after a shooting on Terrebonne that has all the markings of an organized crime hit.

The Surete du Quebec is investigating after the man was shot in his car around 10:45 a.m. as he was driving on de la Piniere Blvd. The victim then took refuge inside a store that sells pool equipment, but two masked men then entered the store and shot him several more times, then fled.

The man was taken to hospital where he was later declared dead.

Shortly after, witnesses were able to provide a description of the vehicle used in the attack. The minivan was found less a one kilometre away – in flames. The suspects had disappeared.

According to the Journal de Montreal and La Presse, the victim is Yannick LaRose, a man believed to have links to the Hells Angels.

During the biker wars in the 1990s, this was the Modus Operandi of organized criminals. They would send a hit team wearing ski masks, use a minivan for the attack, then set it on fire immediately afterwards.

The SQ has taken over the investigation from the Terrebonne police, but said the Terrebonne police were not in any way implicated in the shooting.
