A 38 year old male who was in critical condition after being stabbed in the night from Friday to Saturday in a housing of the borough of Lachine in Montreal, succumbed to his injuries on Saturday morning.
This is the 25th murder to be committed on the territory of the Police Service of the City of Montreal.
Around midnight an altercation between the victim and another man, aged 42, and a 55 year old woman, the mother of the killed man, according to various sources, has degenerated into an apartment on Sherbrooke Street, near 14th Avenue. They were apparently drunk.
The mother of the victim was seriously injured, but his life was not in danger.
Upon arrival at the scene, the police arrested the alleged assailant who was also injured but not serious. Investigators were to meet later Saturday.
