Watchdog investigating after Quebec man falls to his death during raid
Quebec’s police watchdog is investigating the death of a man Thursday during a police operation in Laval, Que.
The provincial agency says according to preliminary information, a 36-year-old man died after falling from a 7th floor apartment building during a police drug raid.
The unidentified man apparently ran to the apartment balcony when police arrived and threw something over the railing.
The agency says he then tried to jump to a neighbouring balcony on the same floor, but fell to the ground.
The Office of Independent Investigations says the man was pronounced dead a short time later.
Provincial police are assisting the agency with the investigation.
