The Canadian Press – † Story: 370266

Gatineau police say they are investigating a murder involving a 22-year-old man early Saturday in western Quebec City across from Ottawa.

Police say they were called after a man with serious upper body injuries was found around 2 a.m. outside a business in the Aylmer district.

Despite efforts to save him, the victim, a resident of Gatineau, was pronounced dead in hospital.

Police had said earlier Saturday they were investigating a stabbing, but said an autopsy would be performed to determine the cause of death.

Investigators meet witnesses and Quebec provincial police provide assistance in collecting forensic evidence.

It is the second murder in the territory covered by the Gatineau police since early 2022.
