Three people, including a father and his son, have been arrested in connection with an armed altercation in a rooming house in Quebec City that resulted in the death of one man and two people injured.
Police say they were called to an address on Ste-Foy Street in the city's Saint-Sacrement district around 9:10 p.m. Tuesday to respond to an incident involving multiple people.
When officers arrived, they found a 32-year-old man with serious injuries, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
A 46-year-old woman and a 55-year-old man were also taken to hospital with injuries.
Three people were arrested including the 55-year-old man who was taken to hospital and his 20-year-old son. A third person, who is 16 years old, was also arrested.
The three suspects have all appeared in court. Both the father and son were charged with first-degree murder and remain in custody. The 16-year-old is facing less serious charges — wearing a disguise with intent and possession of a weapon with dangerous purpose.
The youth is expected to reappear in court next week for a bail hearing.
Police say preliminary information suggests the altercation was between residents of the rooming house.
Psychological support is being offered on site by social workers from the health authority for the capital region, CIUSSS de la Capitale-Nationale.
Jean-Marc Tanguay is one of those social workers. He says his team will be there for as long as necessary.
"We have four [social workers] who are here to help to answer any needs that could emerge from this situation," said Tanguay.
