Montreal police said on Wednesday that a suspect who had been killed during a robbery with three citizens who had prevented him from escaping an arrest scene had died.
The 34-year-old victim, Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Const. Raphaël Bergeron told me. His death is seen as a murder.
The man ran away with cash when three men stopped her Tuesday night.
Uncle of the robbery suspect, Martin Monette, described him as Jaeson Perron.
Perron has a comprehensive criminal record dating back to 2004, including theft and the charges of breaking and breaking.
Police described the incident as an armed robbery, but Bergeron has since said investigators continue to work to determine if a man has a weapon when he asks for money.
The police arrived at the scene after the 911 caller reportedly had a fight at Nicolet Street near Ontario Street East at 8:45.
When the officers arrived, they placed a group of people on a street road that restricted him. The man was unconscious, Bergeron said.
She moved to a hospital patient and later died of her injuries.
Police say the exact nature of the victim's injuries has not yet been determined, but no weapons are used. An autopsy will be done.
Bergeron said three men, 37, 48 and 78, were considered "important witnesses".
They were interrogated by the researchers and released on Wednesday afternoon free of charge.
After the investigation, the police will determine whether one or three of them will become suspicious.
Bergeron said, ade It is seen as a murder because of the circumstances surrounding the incident.
This is the 28th murder of the city in 201. There were 24 people in 2017.
