The Major Crimes Unit is investigating after the body of a man was discovered in a parking lot near a condominium co-operative in Anjou.
Montreal police (SPVM) spokesperson Raphaël Bergeron said a passerby made the discovery shortly before 8:30 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot at the corner of M.B. Jodoin Avenue and des Galeries d’Anjou Boulevard.
“The man noticed a man lying on the ground bleeding so he contacted emergency services,” Bergeron said.
Urgences-Santé attended the scene and pronounced the man dead.
Police have erected a perimeter around the scene.
“The body showed signs of violence,” Bergeron said, adding the death is being treated as a homicide.
The incident is the fifth homicide of 2017 to occur on SPVM territory.
Late Saturday afternoon, Bergeron confirmed the victim was a 47-year-old man who was known to police.
