Montreal Police Shoot and Kill 54-Year-Old Man (March 11-12, 2020)

A Montreal police officer shot and killed a 54-year-old man on the late night/early morning of March 11-12, 2020. The Bureau of Independent Investigations (BEI), the agency that examines cases of police harm to civilians in Quebec, is investigating. According to the BEI, police were responding to a domestic dispute call in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve shortly before midnight. BEI report that an officer entered the apartment through the back door and opened fire on the man. The man was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The BEI is not actually an independent agency. They depend on police officers from other forces. Eight BEI investigators have been assigned to investigate this killing. They will be assisted by two Sûreté du Québec (SQ, provincial police force) forensic technicians. Police investigate police in Quebec.

    Have you heard or read anything about the young native who was held in Thunder Bay jail for a long time? You posted the story about September last year. They have ways of hiding the aftermath of cases.
