Mafia-linked developer Tony Magi was found unconscious by Montreal police near the garage door of the building at 6125 St Jacques on the morning of Jan 23, 2020. Magi was found to have been shot at least once in the upper body. He was transported in critical condition to a hospital where he later died. This was not the first time an attempt had been made on Magi's life. In 2005, he was kidnapped, and he also survived an assassination attempt in 2008 when his SUV was left riddled with bullets in a shooting. In 2011, his vehicle was shot at again when his wife was inside. In 2013, a man with a gun was spotted near his home in NDG at the corner of Somerled and Beaconsfield, not far from where he was killed.
