Two people who died after being shot on Saturday at Listuguj Miꞌgmaq First Nation – fr


Two people have died and a suspect is in custody following a shooting in Listuguj First Nation on Saturday morning, according to the Quebec police watchdog.
Officers from the Listuguj Police Department were called to a residence on Riverside Road after receiving reports of gunfire.

They arrived around 11:30 am and found a barricaded person inside, before hearing more gunshots.

A 28-year-old man inside the house refused to cooperate with the police, but eventually got out of the house and surrendered.

Listuguj police said on Sunday morning that a suspect was in custody, but did not provide details of the person’s identity.

Police found two injured people inside the house. They later died from their injuries in hospital. Quebec police confirmed on Sunday that a girl and a man in his twenties were killed.

Listuguj’s Mi’gmaq government confirmed the incident on its website on Saturday evening.

“On behalf of myself and the Council, our hearts are with you. Our government will continue to make every effort to provide support to those in need during these difficult times, ”Chief Darcy Gray said in a statement. “In the coming days, LMG will make services available to those affected. “

Gray said community members are urged to stay away from the area as the Listuguj Police and Quebec Police Department investigation is underway.

The Independent Investigation Bureau of Quebec will also examine the circumstances of the police intervention during the incident.
