The residence of fallen entrepreneur Tony Accurso was the target of gunfire overnight from Friday to Saturday in yet another violent event targeting his family in recent months.
This time, it is the residence of the businessman on 15th avenue, in Deux-Montagnes, which would have been targeted, according to a police source.
A private security guard reportedly notified the Régie de Police du Lac des Deux-Montagnes, which then delegated the case to the Sûreté du Québec, which is currently conducting the investigation.
A dozen bullet holes could be seen in a front window of the house, according to the QMI Agency.
The main hypothesis of the SQ Major Crimes investigators, who are investigating the threats against the businessman, told sources in La Presse last February that a man sentenced to life imprisonment for murder , who would order crimes from the penitentiary where he is incarcerated, could be the author of the extortion attempts committed last fall against Tony Accurso.
Remember that last November, the police of Deux-Montagnes, who paid particular attention to the area where the members of the Accurso family live, arrested four young people in a car.
In the vehicle, they discovered incendiary devices and they established that this time it was the personal residence of Tony Accurso, and not that of one of his children, which was targeted.
As for the children of Tony Accurso, starting last July, their vehicles and residences were the targets of arson and even gunfire.
The most recent events occurred on the night of December 14 to 15, when two businesses linked to the spouse of Tony Accurso’s daughter, in Laval and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, were damaged by arson .
The main theory put forward by the Régie de police du Lac des Deux-Montagnes last fall was a business dispute between members of the Accurso family, but the investigation is ongoing.
