BAIE-COMEAU — Office of the independent surveys (EIB) focuses on two deaths by firearm that occurred on Friday morning, Fermont, nearly 600 kilometres north of Baie-Comeau on the North Shore. The investigators of the EIB are currently en route to the locality of mining.
A 65 year-old man and a woman of 42 years old have been found dead in a residence of the place. As the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) has had to intervene and that there has been a death, the EIB was invited to take the survey in charge.

Thus, around 5am on Friday morning, a call is made to 9-1-1 by a person who says he is riddled with bullets, and who claims to have little time to live. Two police officers from the SQ to make it on the premises.
Once there, a man inside told them to smash the door, what they are doing. Once inside, police say they see a person sitting and at the same time, a shot rang out. The police emerge, then, from the residence and the SQ establishes a security perimeter. When they return inside, around 9: 30, they discovered the inert bodies of the man and the woman.
Six investigators of the EIB have been dispatched to the scene to conduct their investigation. They will be assisted by a technician in the forensic identification of the police Department of the City of Quebec, which acts as the body of police support in this investigation.
