Quebecer shot on vacation in Sint Maarten dies

Global Affairs Canada has confirmed that a Quebecer shot in Sint Maarten has died after being flown to Florida.

A spokesperson told CTV News that "Canadian consular officials are in contact with local authorities in Florida, and are providing consular assistance to the family."

The man's identity cannot be disclosed yet due to privacy concerns.

The 48-year-old, who was on vacation with his daughter in the Dutch island territory, was shot "after a brief struggle" during an armed robbery on Wednesday.  He was found bleeding on the ground, and flown to Florida on Friday for medical attention.

Local police are still attempting to find at least three suspects associated with the attack.
