The lady who died in Saint-Raymond de Portneuf a week ago, after being hit by a projectile from a firearm, probably resided on the same street as the accused.

The identity of Patricia Sirois was made public on Friday. She had been protected by a court order since the arrest of Martin Lévesque, charged with second degree murder.
The prosecutor, Me Mélanie Dufour, asked Judge Johanne Roy to lift the order. The 35-year-old was shot dead while driving her car.
According to information obtained by The newspaper, she worked at the Integrated University Health and Social Services Center (CIUSSS) in the Capitale-Nationale.
On the evening of the events, neighbors said they had heard “four or five” detonations at the scene of the crime, information that the Sûreté du Québec did not want to confirm.
Seriously injured, the lady quickly succumbed to her injuries.
Lévesque’s spouse, Guylaine Laflamme, faces charges of assault and obstruction of police work. She was able to regain her freedom earlier this week.
In addition to a deposit of money to guarantee her freedom, Laflamme will have to go to the CLSC to meet with a worker who can refer her to therapy.
The woman, who has a problem with alcohol consumption and who uses violence when she is intoxicated, will have to live with her daughter in Quebec.
Lévesque and Laflamme will both return to court at the end of October.
