MONTREAL - A man wielding a hammer near Montreal's main downtown bus station was fatally shot on Monday after he apparently refused to surrender, police say.
Quebec provincial police, who are investigating the shooting under provincial protocol, said seven Montreal police officers involved in the incident were taken to hospital and treated for shock.
"After they are treated, the officers will meet with our investigators to get their version of events," said Sgt. Martine Asselin, a Quebec provincial police spokeswoman.
