Montreal police not ruling out anything in suspicious Verdun death
Montreal police say they are not ruling out “any hypothesis” in connection with a suspicious death in the Verdun borough.
Officers were called to an apartment on Egan Street around 10 p.m. after reports of gunshots.
They discovered the body of a 42-year-old man in the home with fatal gunshot wounds.
Montreal police spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant confirmed investigators are on the scene and are not ruling anything out — including the possibility of accidental death.
“An autopsy will be performed to discover the cause of death,” he told Global News.
A perimeter has been set up in the area as authorities investigate the circumstances leading up to the shooting.
