Stabbing victims out of danger, Quebec's police watchdog says

Quebec's police watchdog says two people who were wounded in a stabbing attack that killed three other people are out of danger.

The independent investigation unit is saying little else about its probe into Saturday's incident in the remote northern Quebec village of Akulivik.

The agency was called in after police shot and killed a 19-year-old man armed with a knife who is alleged to have entered three different homes and stabbed five people in all.

One of the three people killed was a 10-year-old boy.

A woman who witnessed the shooting say officers with Kativik Regional Police fired several shots when the suspect didn't drop his knife.

Residents say the tragedy has shaken Akulivik, leaving the village shocked and devastated.
