MONTREAL — Quebec's police watchdog is investigating a police shooting that left a man dead in Montreal . A spokesman for the local paramedic service says the man shot by police was in his early 30s. Steve Fiset of Urgences-Sante says a police officer was also transported to hospital

Quebec’s independent police watchdog is investigating after a man was killed during an early morning police intervention in Montreal . The BEI say that, based on preliminary information, the man was holding a knife and made his way toward the police cruiser, where officers remained inside, before

She said the borough has a history of police shootings of Black men, including the fatal 2018 shooting of 23-year-old Nicholas Gibbs. "The senseless killing of people of colour needs to end," Montgomery said. "Systemic racism is undeniable. It is present in the (Montreal police) and in all facets of our society."

Police had responded to a call made just before 6 a.m. about a man in crisis in the Notre-Dame-de-Grace neighbourhood.

The watchdog, known as the BEI, said that when police arrived, officers stayed in their vehicle as the man allegedly walked towards their car armed with a knife.

When he turned toward another vehicle with a driver inside, police left their car to intervene, and that's when they allege the man came at them.

Steve Fiset of the local paramedic service Urgences-Sante said the victim was in his 30s. He said a police officer was also transported to hospital following the shooting but had no physical injuries.

Montreal police declined to comment due to the BEI investigation.

The BEI said it has assigned eight investigators to the case, who will be aided by two provincial police crime-scene technicians. The investigators left the scene at 5:20 p.m. Thursday and the investigation is ongoing.
