A criminal investigation has the roads around the St. Laurent Centre closed.
St. Laurent Blvd. is closed from Cyrville to Ogilvie, and Coventry Rd. is closed from St. Laurent to the mall itself. Currently, the closures affect ALL traffic (northbound, southbound, eastbound, and westbound), and pedestrians.
The road closures have reportedly been in place since about 2:30am this morning, and will likely be in place for “the better part of the day.”
UPDATE: Ottawa police have confirmed they are investigating the city’s 17th homicide of the year. Expect the road closures to remain in place for a while.
