Two women were stabbed to death and another wounded Monday night in a residential area of Ottawa. The suspect was shot after an argument with police.
According to preliminary information, the Ottawa Police Service (OPS) was called to the apartment on Anoka Street, between Bank Street and Heron Road, around 10:30 p.m.
Officers who arrived there saw a woman stabbing a man. The latter, refusing to obey orders to drop his knife, was shot on the spot by officers who fired their guns.
The woman was “stabbed several times and seriously injured and is still in hospital,” OBS said in a statement Tuesday morning. The latter was hit by one of the shells, but the bullet wound was not life-threatening, the Ontario Special Investigation Unit (SIU) said in a statement.
The bodies of two more victims were also found by authorities near the scene of the clash.
All three stabbing cases are being investigated by the OPS homicide unit police.
The SIU has been tasked with investigating the death of the suspect.
“Two investigators and two forensic investigators have been appointed to investigate the case. [atteints par balle]. So far, three course officers and six witness officers have been named. The man’s autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow, “said SIU spokeswoman Monica Hooden.
Those with information in the form of videos or photos are requested to contact SIU at 1-800-787-8529 or via the website. https://siu.on.ca/en/appeals.php
