A man in his 50s is dead after he was found shot in the upper body in Montreal’s Notre-Dame-de-Grâce district this morning.

Multiple sources have confirmed to Radio-Canada the dead man is Tony Magi, a businessman with known ties to the Montreal Mafia.

Police were called to a garage located at 6125 Saint-Jacques Street near Beaconsfield Avenue around 11:15 a.m.

This is not the first time an attempt has been made on Magi’s life. 

In 2008, his SUV was left riddled with bullets in a shooting.

In 2011, his vehicle was again shot at. His wife, who was inside the vehicle at the time of the shooting, was unharmed in that incident.

In 2013, a man with a gun was spotted near his NDG home.
