Po­lice op­er­a­tion at La Mar­quise shuts down Queen Street

Sherbrooke Record - - FRONT PAGE - By Matthew Mccully

Apo­lice op­er­a­tion at La Mar­quise Mo­tel in Len­noxville that caused the clo­sure of Queen Street for most of the af­ter­noon yes­ter­day re­sulted in the ar­rest of two in­di­vid­u­als.

Ac­cord­ing to Sher­brooke Po­lice Ser­vice (SPS) Spokesper­son Martin Car­rier, po­lice re­ceived a call around noon re­gard­ing a vic­tim al­leged to have been at­tacked with a firearm.

A tac­ti­cal in­ter­ven­tion squad was de­ployed to the scene, and a perime­ter was cre­ated around the mo­tel, Car­rier ex­plained.

To en­sure the safety of Cit­i­zens, Queen Street was closed be­tween Con­vent and Acadie Streets while the

in­ter­ven­tion team as­sessed the sit­u­a­tion and waited for the sus­pect, thought to be armed, to sur­face from the mo­tel room.

Af­ter roughly four hours, the team made two ar­rests; one male in his 30s. A woman in her 20s, also in the mo­tel room, was ar­rested as well and will be ques­tioned by po­lice.

Car­rier said a pel­let gun was re­cov­ered at the scene. At press time, the SPS was still in the process of search­ing the room, so Car­rier could not con­firm any other de­tails about the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, still in progress.
