A 52-year-old ex-police officer died Sunday evening in unclear circumstances, in a residence in Saint-Georges, in Beauce. Another man in his 50s, considered a suspect, was arrested and could face criminal charges in connection with the death.

It was around 9:30 p.m. that the Sûreté du Québec police officers showed up at a residence on 187th Street.

On site, the agents discovered an inanimate body with serious injuries. The victim was pronounced dead on site.

According to information from Radio-Canada, the victim is Sylvio Champagne, originally from Saint-Georges. He was a former police officer with the Montreal City Police Department.

A man who was also at the scene was arrested and transported to a hospital to have his condition assessed. He will remain detained, therefore under surveillance, in the hospital.
