Emergency services were alerted by several calls to 911, around 12:15 a.m., Saturday, regarding several gunshots heard near the intersection of Bellechasse and Saint-Denis streets.

Still according to our police sources, the members of the Célestin family rushed out as soon as they learned that the 28-year-old man years old had just been shot.

The victim's mother and her partner had to be taken into charge by emergency services in front of the crime scene.

The shooter(s) were patiently waiting for the victim in the restaurant parking, according to our information. There were no immediate arrests, and police are still looking for suspects.

For police officers investigating organized crime, this shooting at a family party is a very strong message sent by the Celestins' rivals.

Jean Brandon Célestin was not a major player in the criminal world, but the police considered him followed in the footsteps of his brother Jean-Philippe, who was very close to the late godfather of street gangs, Grégory Woolley.

None of the members of the Célestin family would have agreed to collaborate with SPVM investigators after the murder.

À Currently, our police sources are convinced that Jean-Philippe Célestin will want to avenge the murder of his little brother, which also occurred on the sidelines of a family gathering. Armed violence in organized crime could therefore, in the coming months, experience a resurgence of reprisals.

This crime follows the attempted murder that occurred a week earlier in Laval against Ali Chaban associated with a rival clan of street gangs. Investigators are currently trying to analyze whether there is a direct link to explain the motive.

It is is the 6th homicide to occur in Montreal this year.
