Sûreté du Québec Break into Home and Kill Man in Jonquiere (July 9, 2016)

Québec’s Bureau of Independent Investigations is investigating the killing of a 27-year-old man by the provincial police force, the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), on Saturday, July 9, 2016 in Jonquiere. Sergeant Jean Tremblay of the SQ claims that the man had barricaded himself inside a home and was killed during a standoff with police. No other witnesses have corroborated the police account. Police supposedly suspected the man of robbing a pharmacy Friday evening. Officers broke into the home then shot and killed the man. None of the police account has been corroborated. No explanation has been given or evidence provided for why police opened fire on someone suspected only of robbery, or why they broke into the home to do so. There is no report of attempts to communicate with the man. In this case apparently robbery is a capital offense punishable by immediate extrajudicial execution.
