Laval police create special squad after Scoppa hit

Laval police chief Pierre Brochet announced the creation of Project Répercussion, a special squad that will be composed of investigators from the Laval police, the Sûreté du Québec and the RCMP. Scoppa, the brother of Andrea (Andrew) Scoppa, 55, leader of a Calabrian branch of the Montreal Mafia, was killed on May 4 at the Sheraton Hotel in Laval at a reception to celebrate his son’s confirmation. A gunman fired several shots endangering many, including children.
No one has been arrested in connection with the shooting.

Scoppa’s murder is one in a series of unsolved Mafia-related killings in Laval. Notable victims include: Lorenzo Giordano and Rocco Sollecito, two Mafia leaders who were gunned down in two separate shootings in 2016; Harry Mytil, 33, a street gang leader who was probably killed in 2013, Vincenzo Spagnolo, 65, a close friend of Vito Rizzuto in October 2016; and Steve Ovadia, 45, a man tied to Andrea Scoppa who was killed in June last year.
