The Chablis hotel on St Jacques was the scene for the second murder on St J in the last month. While there is no police confirmation of the facts, it would appear that a person was shot in one of the rooms, possible stabbed as well, and attempted to escape running. He collapsed (or was made to collapse, details are sketchy) on the sidewalk in front of the Super C.
He was rushed to hospital and pronounced dead.
Less than a month ago, another man was killed near the Peel Pub on St Jacques.
