Man killed in triple stabbing near St. Laurent Shopping Centre, Ottawa

A stabbing outside the St. Laurent Shopping Centre on Friday afternoon caused the death of one person and the hospitalisation of two more individuals with non-life-threatening injuries.

The victims were taken to the Civic campus of The Ottawa Hospital and the incident is being investigated by the Ottawa Police Service (OPS) Homicide Unit.

Blood could be seen on the ground outside the shopping centre and a video appears to show an altercation that involves a stabbing inside the mall. In order to conduct the investigation, Ottawa police and OC Transpo Special Constable cruisers blocked off a section of the road.

Although the O-Train is operating, according to OC Transpo, it will not be stopping at St-Laurent station on Friday afternoon due to the ongoing police investigation.
