One person is in critical condition with the wounds of firearms, and the cop has suffered lighter injuries after a conflict on Thursday morning at the Elmvale Acres shopping mall at Bulevar St.. Laurent.
The hospitals said the civilian victim, whose age and gender was not immediately available, was in critical condition with the injuries described as life-threatening.
No further information was provided about the injured cop.
The police reacted to the Elmvale Acres shopping mall at St. Boulevard. Laurent shortly before 8 am, after receiving the report, saw a man dressed in black entering a center with a knife in his hand.
The wide area was stolen at the mall, in front of the Loblaws store and the RBC bank branch at the western end of the shopping mall.
Unspecified reports at the venue showed that the victim, as it seemed, was hit in the area of the leg and shoulders.
The policemen had stumbled across the shopping center south of Smyth Road, and OC Transpo closed the nearby Elmvale station "to the next".
