Thierry Leroux - Police Officer Fatality - Quebec, Canada

Thierry Leroux
Constable Thierry Leroux, age 26, died in the line of duty on February 13, 2016, at a hospital in Val-d'Or, Quebec.

Constable Leroux was a member of Service de Police de Lac-Simon. He had six months of service.

Lac-Simon is an Aboriginal community about 350 miles northwest of Montreal. The population is just under 1,000.

At about 10:30 p.m., Thierry and another officer responded to a domestic disturbance call at a house in Lac-Simon. As the two officers approached the house, a male inside unexpectedly opened fire. Thierry was fatally shot. 

Thierry was rushed to a hospital in Val-d'Or, where, tragically, he succumbed to his injuries. 

The male subject, Joseph Raymond-Papatie, age 22, was found deceased inside the house of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

The circumstances of these tragic deaths are under investigation. 
Michael, Patron Saint of the Police, pray for
Thierry and for those who have lost him.

The Service de Police de Lac-Simon is in mourning over the death of their young brother. Thierry had a future in law enforcement. He will be forever remembered.

Thierry's loved ones are devastated over his sudden and tragic death. He was loving and was loved in return. He did his best. He will be forever mourned.

Thierry is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members who will forever miss him.

Thank you for your service to the community, Thierry.

Pray for all who die in the line of duty.

God save us from the Lost Ones who bring death to strangers. Amen.

Pray that Thierry is in Heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
