A police source has confirmed media reports that the man who was fatally shot in Pierrefonds Monday morning was Andrea (Andrew) Scoppa, a man described by police in the past as the leader of a Calabrian clan that was part of the Montreal Mafia.

Scoppa was also the brother of Salvatore Scoppa, the man who was killed at a Laval hotel this year.

Last week, Salvatore Scoppa was alleged to have been the mastermind behind the deaths of four men tied to the Montreal Mafia , including Rocco Sollecito and Lorenzo Giordano. Both men admitted in court that they acted as leaders in the Rizzuto organization when they pleaded guilty to a series of crimes in Project Colisée.

Scoppa 's criminal record includes guilty pleas for assault causing bodily harm and breaking and entering. He was the brother of Andrew Scoppa , alleged to be an influential figure in the Montreal Mafia . Andrew was arrested as part of a police operation aimed at dismantling a drug smuggling ring.

Andrea Scoppa was sometimes at odds with the Rizzuto organization but he was once considered an influential figure in the same group. Another police source said that Andrea Scoppa was known to frequent the area in Pierrefonds where he was killed Monday morning. He owned a nearby condo in Dollard-des-Ormeaux where an attempt on his life was apparently made a few years ago. And, during a bail hearing in a case where Andrea Scoppa was charged with cocaine trafficking, it was revealed that he was residing at a house on Île-Bizard.

The body was discovered Monday morning lying in a pool of blood in a parking lot near Harry Worth St. in the borough of Pierrefonds.

The major crimes squad is investigating and police will examine footage from surveillance cameras in the area.

For weeks, he didn’t even want to talk about it, until his daughter convinced him his story could help others avoid the same ruse.  His trusting nature cost him $3,500.
