|A man who had close ties to former crime boss Vito Rizzuto was gunned down in Laval on Saturday, in what police described as a "settling of accounts."
Vincenzo Spagnolo, 65, was killed at his home in the city's Vimont neighbourhood. Laval Police were called to a house on Antoine-Forestier Street at around 5:30 p.m. concerning a man who had been struck by multiple gunshots.|
Vincenzo Spagnolo was the best friend and trusted confidant of Vito Rizzuto, the former godfather of the Montreal Mafia. Spagnolo was one of those who had received the godfather in Toronto in October 2012, when Vito Rizzuto returned to Canada after spending six years in US jails for his involvement in the murders of three captains of the Bonanno clan in 1981.
