Montreal Mafia connected Steve Ovadia whacked in Laval

Steve Ovadia was shot in the head in the parking lot of a strip mall last week. Two men fled the scene of the shooting, but no arrests have been made. Ovadia had been observed meeting with Mafia leaders Stefano Sollecito and Leonardo Rizzuto while they were under police surveillance.

Ovadia’s name was also mentioned during a bail hearing for Andrea (Andrew) Scoppa, the alleged leader of the Calabrian clan within the Montreal Mafia. Ovadia did not have a criminal record in Quebec, but did have a peace bond after threatening someone. The murder was carried out one day after John Mckenzie, 48, a man with ties to the West End Gang, was shot in Laval. McKenzie survived.
