‘I don’t think anyone has the right to do this’: Man shot dead by police in Quebec
Posted On July 12, 2021
Montreal police are investigating the shooting death of a man who was found dead in his home.
The man was identified by police as 52-year-old Raymond Chabot.
Chabots death has raised questions about how officers responded to a call about a man with a knife at the home, which has been described as a folding kitchen door.
Police said officers were called to a home in Saint-Jérôme, Que., around 9:30 p.m.
Friday to investigate a report of a suspicious person at the house.
When officers arrived, they found the man lying on the floor, with multiple stab wounds to his upper body.
Chagots death is being investigated as a homicide.
Chambon said officers responded after a 911 call about the stabbing and found Chabott in the kitchen.
“He was unresponsive.
He was unconscious,” said Chambont.
“We were able to resuscitate him and then they put him on the stretcher and brought him to hospital.”
A woman who answered the phone at the residence where the man was found said she did not know the man.
Chapin said police will conduct a thorough investigation.
He said officers will also determine if the incident was suspicious or caused any property damage.
“It’s important for us to get the facts before we make any decisions,” said Chapin.
“There’s nothing that can’t be solved and there’s nothing we can’t find out.”
A Facebook page set up by Chambons family has more than 3,000 likes.
In a message on the page, the man’s daughter said she was shocked to learn of his death.
“I have a feeling that this was the most painful, traumatic experience for my father,” she wrote.
“Our family will never forget this experience.
I am very sorry to those who lost their lives.”
A video posted to the page showed police arriving at the scene and taking the man into custody.
Police did not release further details.
Police will conduct an investigation into the incident.
