Quebec police shoot, kill man allegedly brandishing chainsaw near Montreal

Police north of Montreal have shot and killed a man they say was threatening them with a chainsaw.

 

Deux-Montagnes regional police officers were called to deal with a family dispute early this morning and found the 52-year-old man with the motor-driven saw, which they say was running.

 

Police say they fired at least one shot after he began acting in a threatening manner.

 

He was declared dead in hospital.

 

The incident occurred in Saint-Joseph-du-Lac, northwest of Montreal.

 

Provincial police have taken over the investigation.

 

In Quebec, it is customary for another police force to investigate when officers are involved in a call that results in injury or death.
