The police had discovered inside the building the bodies of the three victims, bearing traces of violence, “possibly caused by a sharp object”, said another spokesperson for the SPVM, Julien Lévesque.

The crime scene was the subject of a large security perimeter. Several police vehicles were at the scene and a command post was established. Neighbors were also questioned.

Employees and patients who had to go to the Montreal Heart Institute, located opposite the crime scene, were asked to go to the establishment by another access than its main entrance.

In a press briefing in his riding of L’Assomption on Friday, Premier François Legault said that it was a “really disturbing” situation.

Asked about the number of fatal tragedies in the past few weeks, Legault did not want to comment on the case in Rosemont, but he underlined that everywhere in the world there are problems related to mental health.

The premier reiterated his commitment to increase the amount reserved for mental health in the provincial budget, which will be presented next week.
