MONTREAL — Police on Wednesday arrested a man suspected of having fired shots at a Jewish school in the Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough, in Montreal, on November 12 last year.

The Montreal City Police Service (SPVM) indicates that the suspect, a 20-year-old man, was arrested by the West Criminal Investigation Division in the LaSalle borough.

He appeared at the Montreal courthouse in the afternoon and faces charges of discharging a firearm, theft and receiving stolen vehicles.

An investigation is still underway into the possible participation of one or more other people during the incident of November 12.
