Laval resident is charged with carrying out an armed robbery on one of two men killed on Dec. 24.
A 21-year-old man has been charged with carrying out an armed robbery on one of the two men who were killed in a shooting in St-Léonard on Dec. 24.
A bail hearing at the Montreal courthouse is scheduled for Monday for Fodil-Abderhamane Lakehal, a resident of Laval. He was arrested this week by the Montreal police as part of their investigation of the deaths of Davis Arbour, 38, of Anjou, and Marc-Hilary Dasilma, 41.
Both men were killed as part of what police believed was an argument that involved several people inside an apartment on Jean-Talon St. E., near du Come St.
Lakehal is not charged with either homicide but he is charged with committing the armed robbery of Arbour, a man who according to La Presse was a member of the Devils Ghosts, a support club of the Hells Angels. The robbery is alleged to have occurred on the same day Arbour was shot. According to a source familiar with the investigation, homicide investigators believe Lakehal was at the scene of the shooting and left before police arrived. No one else has been charged in connection with the double slaying.
Shortly after Arbour and Dasilma were killed, Montreal police said they believed several people were inside an apartment in the 10-storey residential building when the shooting took place. Almost everyone had fled before police arrived but they found a 25-year-old woman at the scene. She was uninjured but had to be taken to a hospital to be treated for shock.
Lahehal has a criminal record that includes convictions for relatively minor offences. In June 2018, he pleaded guilty to forging or falsifying credit cards and received a sentence that involved an unconditional discharge.
In 2002, Dasilma was referred to, in a court decision, as a member of the Bo-Gars, a Montreal street gang that originated in Montreal North in the 1980s. He was alleged to be a leading member of the gang despite being only 25 at the time.
At the time of his death, Davis was still serving a 15-month prison term he received, in January 2018, for trafficking in drugs like cocaine and ecstasy from a residence in Repentigny.
