A slightly different account from the Montreal Gazette
A man in his 30s was shot dead by police in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu Monday morning after three pedestrians were hit by a car. Police say the man fled the scene of the accident when police arrived, was involved in a chase, lost control of his car and flipped it, got out of the car and ran at police with a knife.
It began just before noon, when three people were hit in the parking lot of a strip mall on Séminaire Blvd. and the suspect sped off. The regional police followed him and he lost control at the intersection of du Séminaire and de Carillon St.
When police caught up, the suspect climbed out of his car, a knife in his hand, and ran at them. Police opened fire and he died.
Of the three pedestrians hit, two were seriously hurt.
