Well known Music promoter, Ewald Étienne, shot and killed in Montreal

Music promoter, Ewald Étienne, was gunned down last Thursday, December 17, 2014 in front of his home close to Maurice-Duplessis Blvd. in Montreal


Ewald Stephen who was 35 years old was also a cafe owner and bank employee. He has been described by many as a very kind and gentle person.

Haitian-born, Montreal-based show promoter Ewald Etienne became the 27th homicide victim for the city for the year when he was murdered in Rivière-des-Prairies, Montreal. The victim, 35 years of age, sustained at least one gunshot to the upper body in the incident that took place on 63rd Avenue, outside of a home near Maurice-Duplessis Boulevard.

Etienne, aside from being a show promoter, was also employee of a bank, and a cafe worker, who was described as a kind and gentle person. It is speculated that his death may have a link to a debt, contracted by two Haitians with the mafia, in which he was the guarantee. As of yet, however, no one has been named as a suspect, and no arrests have been made. What is known is that at 8:30 that night, the police received a call about a man in distress, and Etienne was found at the address, lying on the ground. He was taken to the hospital but was pronounced dead.
