Longueuil: the BEI is investigating after a police intervention that left one dead

The Bureau of Independent Investigations (BEI) has announced the launch of an investigation into the circumstances of an altercation involving a police officer from the Longueuil agglomeration police department (SPAL) which went wrong late Sunday evening.

Around 11:35 p.m., SPAL police officers were called to intervene for an altercation between two men armed with sticks, in the parking lot of a business located on Boulevard Cousineau.

Upon arriving at the scene, a police officer located a 41-year-old man with a stick in his possession. The latter would have tried to attack the agent, and a physical altercation would have broken out. During this, the forties would have lost consciousness.

“He was taken to a hospital center where he is in serious condition,” said the BEI before finally confirming his death on Monday morning.

Five investigators were in charge of the case, while a parallel investigation was entrusted to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) which will act as a support police service.
