The two women, ages 73 and 22, who Montreal police officers found shot in an apartment in the Sud-Ouest borough Thursday morning have both died. Police have also confirmed they were grandmother and granddaughter.

The 73-year-old woman was pronounced dead on the scene. The 22-year-old woman was transported to the hospital in critical condition but later died as a result of her injuries, SPVM spokesperson Marianne Allaire-Morin said.

The shootings occurred at around 2:40 a.m., when a 911 call reported gunshots on rue Mullins near the intersection with rue Charlevoix in the Pointe-Saint-Charles neighbourhood. Police arrived to find the two women inside the apartment.

The SPVM is now investigating the incident as a double homicide, Allaire-Morin added.

There was no suspect as of Thursday morning.

The investigation continues.
