Man dies in hospital after being shot by Montreal police
MONTREAL — Quebec’s police watchdog is investigating a police shooting in Montreal on Tuesday evening that claimed the life of a 58-year-old man.
The Independent Investigations Bureau say police were called at about 7 p.m. regarding a man who was allegedly demolishing everything in his apartment.
The agency says the man held a screwdriver in each of his hands when police arrived and that officers unsuccessfully tried to subdue him with plastic bullets and a stun gun.
It says the man was then apparently shot several times by police officers and later died in hospital.
Twelve agency investigators along with Quebec Provincial Police are investigating the incident.
