Normal 4 dead, 16 injured in shooting at Montreal college

CTV.ca News Staff

Two suspected gunmen are dead in a chaotic shooting scene at a college in downtown Montreal that has left three people in critical condition.

"Government sources are saying two of the gunmen are dead," said CTV's Jed Kahane, reporting from Montreal. "One may have taken his own life, the other was shot by police."

Kahane said police received a call about the shooting at just before 1 p.m. ET. There were questions about whether a third gunman was also involved.

Dawson College is located at the corner of Atwater and Sherbrooke in the heart of downtown Montreal.
This is like 3 blocks west of my apartment

EDIT: All major US networks covering it right now. Looks like there might be a third gunmen unaccounted for that the police are after downtown.

Wow. I was in Montreal in May for a conference. It's a beautiful city, and I was treated very warmly everywhere I went.

I hope everyone is alright.

I go to a Quebec City college that's the equivalent of Dawson.... it's terrifying to think tragedies like this can happen in a place you think to be safe.

Montreal, vous êtes dans nos pensées.

Yeah it's shocking. I'm in the news business and I interviewed an eye witness of the shooting. He was frantic, talking a hundred miles a minute. His friend was shot.

Right now there is one gunman and he was shot by police. As for more gunman, everything I've heard suggests there were none. It was a crazy scene today and one you never think would happen in your city. What is this world coming to?

I'm sure this is bringing back bad memories of the 'Montreal Massacre' university killings in the late 80s. It's so tragic and sad....I can't imagine what it would be like to have a loved one involved with something like this.

The Montreal Massacre was my first thought, and was it an anniversary or something.

This is awful, My heart goes out to parents who have kids going to school there, as well as the victims.
