Sad story out of Quebec. Looks like an RCMP officer was killed after allegedly attacking his (presumably) wife and kid.

Man killed by police identified as RCMP officer after alleged attack on woman, teen in Monteregie

An RCMP officer was killed by police in Quebec Wednesday morning after an alleged attack on a woman and teenager at his home in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, in Quebec's Montérégie region.

The incident is being investigated by Quebec's bureau of investigations (BEI).

According to the BEI, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu police (SJSR) received a 911 call at 2:05 a.m. from a man saying he had just done something terrible.

When police arrived at the home on Biat Street, they found the man armed with a knife.

Officers opened fire and the 48-year-old was hit by at least one projectile.

He was taken to hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Inside the home, police discovered a woman and a teenager, both with life-threatening injuries.

They were transported to hospital in serious condition.

"It was pretty dramatic. They're a good family," said Carmelo Perricone, a neighbour who woke up to the sound of gunshots. "They're good people. In theory, we never would have suspected something dramatic like this to happen."

He said he saw officers attempt to resuscitate his neighbour after the shooting.

The man has since been identified as a Mountie with the RCMP's financial integrity unit, investigating white-collar crime.


Due to the nature of their work are RCMP officers prioritized for mental health medical care or are they stuck dealing with the standard civilian wait times?
