MONTREAL -- A 15 year-old girl has died following a drive-by shooting in Montreal's St-Leonard borough.
Montreal police received call at 6 p.m. Sunday evening reporting gunshots at Valdombre St. near Jean-Talon.
The young woman was found in a parked vehicle with serious injuries to her upper body. She was transported to hospital and was pronounced dead early Monday morning.
Another victim, a 21-year-old male, also sustained major wounds to his upper body. He was found by police a block away on De Come street after attempting to flee the attack on foot.
He was also brought to hospital and is in stable condition.
The young woman was in a parked car talking to the other victim, who was with a small group of pedestrians, when they came under fire from a passing vehicle, police said.
“It’s sad,” said a passerby who said he lived in the area. “Because I have two daughters and I’m lucky everything goes right for them.”

At least two suspects have been identified, who fled the scene in a van, driving west on Jean Talon. But no one has been arrested.
The two suspects were wearing masks, which has made them difficult to identify, police said.
The Major Crimes division and the crime scene technician are investigating what has become the fifth homicide in Montreal this year.
On Monday morning, half a dozen police cars could be seen around a blocked-off parking lot and a small stretch of road just south of Jean-Talon Street as technicians worked to analyze the scene.
A block away, a police car idled in front of a two-storey brick home cordoned off with orange tape, within view of a busy elementary school playground.
Other neighbours expressed their shock over the crime in what they described as a normally peaceful area.
"We were sorry to hear about the loss of a young girl, perhaps a student, with her future before her," neighbour Ali Hellal said.
He said he has lived in the area for more than 10 years and this was the first time he'd heard of a violent crime nearby.
"It's quiet here, always," he said.
Another neighbour, Danny Cimino, said the area has been very quiet lately, especially with COVID-19 restrictions in place.
"I'm very shocked that a 15-year-old girl got shot right here when nothing ever happens," he said.
