Sherbrooke police responded Saturday morning to what they are calling a ‘suspicious death’ near the intersection of Dunant and Belvédère Streets in the Des Nations borough.
According to a press release issued by the Police, a citizen called around 8:40 a.m. to say there was a man who appeared to be unconscious lying on the ground in the parking lot at 1300 Dunant Street.The responding officers confirmed that the man in question was unconscious and attempted lifesaving measures. Care was transferred to paramedics and first responders as these other teams arrived on the scene, but interventions proved unsuccessful and the victim was declared dead on-site.Since the victim, judged to be in his 30s, had visible injuries, an investigation has been opened to establish the causes and circumstances of death. For the moment, all possibilities are being considered by the investigators.
The young man was not someone known to police.
