Intimidation, targeted criminal acts and shooting of firearms are more and more frequent on the North Shore.
There were episodes of shots fired at buildings in Chute-aux-Outardes. There have also been arrests in the area of Sept-Îles which are linked to drug trafficking, indicates the information officer for the Sûreté du Québec, Sergeant Hugues Beaulieu.
He estimates that these conflicts between criminal groups on the North Shore would have started towards the end of summer or the beginning of fall.
It's a question of takeover that we are currently seeing.
