Montreal police arrived to a violent scene in the east end on Tuesday night as the bodies of two children and their father were found inside a Hochelaga-Maisonneuve home, just after 9 pm.
A spokesperson for the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) stated they received a 911 call from the children’s mother who found all three bodies inside a house on Curatteau Street and Pierre-de Coubertin Avenue.
SPVM investigators say they believe the man killed his two children before taking his own life.
