SPVM conducts a search for vehicle linked to fatal June shooting.

The Major Crime Section of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) is appealing to the public for witnesses who may have information about a vehicle wanted in connection with the murder of Francesco Del Balso, which occurred on June 5 in Dorval.

One victim, 53-year-old Francesco Del Balso, was killed when gunshots were

fired close to the intersection of Boulevard Saint-Régis and Avenue Deacon at around 1 p.m. Before the police came, the suspect or suspects allegedly drove away from the site. It is estimated that the white Dodge Ram 1500 Limited pickup vehicle that was seen was manufactured in 2023 or 2019.


Anyone with information or who was near the crime scene that day should contact their local police station or 911. Additionally, anonymous and private reports can be sent online or by phone at 514 393-1133 to Info-Crime Montréal. Info-Crime Montréal is offering rewards of up to $3,000 for information that results in a suspect's arrest.
