3 people dead after stabbings in montreal suspect in custody police say

Montreal police are investigating after three people were fatally stabbed on Friday, and sources tell Radio-Canada that the victims and the suspect are members of the same family.

According to the Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM), a 911 call was placed at around 9:20 a.m. regarding people in need of assistance inside an apartment building near the corner of Bélanger and Viau streets in the Rosemont neighbourhood.

The deaths triggered a major police operation.

Officers found the three victims on the property. Their deaths were confirmed at the scene. Police have not confirmed the link between the suspect and the victim.

A spokesperson for the SPVM said each of the bodies suffered wounds from a sharp object.

For much of the day, there were several emergency vehicles on the scene and police have set up a security perimeter between Viau and 40th Avenue.

On Twitter, Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante offered her condolences to the victims’ families. Premier François Legault also offered his condolences and thanked first responders who rushed to the scene.

“It’s troubling,” Legault said during a public appearance in L’Assomption, located east of Montreal. “We’ll be careful before speculating on the reasons but it’s troubling.”
