The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) provincial police says officers found at least two children in the house. They have been handed over to the province’s youth protection services.

Police cannot confirm if the children witnessed the violence, or what the relationship is between each individual involved. Police also cannot confirm the current condition of the 70-year-old man, or say whether the car where they found the 42-year-old man was parked at the residence or at another location.
