Three deaths in Montreal's Rosemont–La-Petite-Patrie borough are currently being treated as suspicious by the SPVM, who announced in a tweet that an investigation is now underway and one person has been arrested.

The suspect, a man in his early twenties, was taken to the hospital, according to reports from Radio-Canada.

The 911 call came at 9:20 a.m. on Friday, March 17, according to Julien Lévesque, media spokesperson for the SPVM. The police arriving at the scene on rue Bélanger found three bodies that showed evidence of violence caused "possibly by a sharp object," Lévesque said.

The three victims may have come from the same family, Radio-Canada reported on Friday.

Police officers have established a secure perimeter around the scene and rue Bélanger has been closed between rue Viau and 40th avenue, according to the SPVM.
