Laval police are still investigating the murder of a 26-year-old man last week in Auteuil. John Danny Elias-Espinal was shot in the head early Wednesday March 6 in front of his home on boulevard des Laurentides near Bellehumeur. Espinal, also known as Hispanic rapper John Danny Wea Wea, was struck with a bullet near his parked car around 6 a.m. according to 911 calls reporting multiple gunshots. Espinal was rushed to Cité-de-la-santé hospital where he was pronounced dead. A father originally from Dominican Republic, Espinal is being remembered by friends and fans on social media as a kind person who was always smiling. The victim had no criminal record, and the motive for the murder remains a mystery, but media reports suggest that a weapon was left at the scene. This was the third murder of the year in Laval. Anyone with information can contact Police confidentially via their Info-line at 450-662-(INFO)4636.
