Drama in Louiseville: the suspect had a heavy criminal record
Members of forensic identification were at the scene of the tragedy on Tuesday.
The man who was shot by police on Monday evening in Louiseville after killing a sergeant of the Sûreté du Quebec (SQ) is Isaac Brouillard Lessard, 35.
At the time of the events, he was on probation. He has previously been found not criminally responsible three times before being granted a conditional discharge on an assault charge in April 2022.
According to court documents, in 2013, while living in the Lac-à-la-Tortue area of Shawinigan, the suspect was charged with threats to cause death or harm in addition to indecent communication. He pleaded not guilty to these counts and was found not criminally responsible.

Always according to the plumitif we obtained, in 2017, when he lived this time here in Lévis, he was charged with assault and again found not criminally responsible.
The following year (in 2018), once back in Shawinigan , he was charged with threats to cause death or harm in addition to being charged with assault. He was also found not criminally responsible there.
Finally, in the last days of 2021, while living in Trois-Rivières, he obtained a conditional discharge after pleading guilty to assault charges. In April 2022, he was placed on probation for two years as well as approximately 200 hours of community service.
