Triple stabbing at McGill metro
Montreal police closed the McGill metro station early Friday evening after getting reports of a stabbing.
Several people called 9-1-1 around 6:35 p.m. to report a group had attacked several people near the ticket booth.
By the time emergency crews arrived at President Kennedy Ave. and Robert Bourassa Blvd. the only sign of a victim was blood on the floor near the turnstiles, and on the street outside.
While several squads of police officers searched the area the STM was told to evacuate the station, and to not to let metro trains stop at the station.
Soon afterward police were notified of two victims that had showed up in a nearby emergency room. Their injuries are being described as minor.
They are two men in their twenties.
A third victim, a woman in her twenties, was found at the Berri-UQAM metro station. She was stabbed in the upper body, but her injuries are not life-threatening.
Police will question every victim.
Police investigated the scene until 10 p.m., at which point the station was reopened.
