This name belongs to the creators of the history of the Mafia in North America: Rizzuto. Leonardo Rizzuto, who is considered the current mafia boss in Canada, originally from Catholica Eraclea in the Agrigento region, was involved in the shooting in Montreal. He was hit by a few shots, but his life did not appear to be in danger.
The “Montreal Gazette” wrote this news: “After an extensive investigation into drug trafficking a few years ago, the man is considered one of the leaders of the Montreal Mafia”.
Local police, through a spokesperson, reconstructed what happened. Movie scenes, with a Quentin Tarantino-esque location. The shooting reportedly took place on a highway that is part of the jurisdiction of the Sûreté du Québec.
“At 16:40 – the SQ spokesperson says – a vehicle opened fire on highway 440 near Laval. One person was injured. We do not fear for his life. At 8:30 p.m., a Mercedes parked in front of a funeral procession at the corner of highway 13 service road and Main Street The police were still investigating the GLE 53. According to the reconstruction, there would have been at least 6 bullets against Rizzuto, some aimed at the wheels to stop the Mercedes racing, which would have hit the tires. Rizzuto was able to reach the funeral home, located two kilometers from the 440 highway, and continue his journey.
Leonardo Rizzuto last arrived in Sicily in the summer of 2019, when he returned to Cattolica Eraquilia with his wife and children.
