TROIS-RIVIERES, QUE. — Police have arrested two teenage boys after finding three bodies Tuesday morning in a home in this city northeast of Montreal.
Officers were called to the house in west-end Trois-Rivieres around 8 a.m. and found the boys outside.
Police discovered the corpses of three young adults inside.
The teenagers were taken to a local precinct for questioning.
Investigators set up a command post and the entire neighbourhood was roped off.
Police spokesman Michel Letarte did not reveal a possible motive, but said the homicides were not gang related.
Trois-Rivieres Mayor Yves Levesque lives in the same district.
"Who would have thought this could have happened to us," he said. "Our thoughts are now for the family. This is an incredible tragedy. I hope the people who did this will be punished."
