A 30-year-old man is dead after an armed assault in a Montréal-Nord park Friday afternoon, according to police.

Authorities received a call at around 5:30 p.m. about a man who was attacked near the intersection of Savard Avenue and Albert Brosseau Boulevard.

When officers arrived, they found the man with serious injuries — at least one stab wound to his upper body, Montreal police say.

Police spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant says first responders tried to revive the man, but he was declared dead at the scene.

His death marks Montreal's fourth alleged homicide of 2024.

Police suspect the assault occurred during an altercation between the victim and another individual, but Brabant says investigators are still trying to determine a motive.

There have been no arrests, and investigators were preparing to meet with witnesses and review nearby surveillance footage Friday evening.
