    Police say it happened when officers responded to a domestic call at about 10:30 p.m.

    "When they arrived on the scene, at least one shot was fired in their direction," said Sgt. Claude Denis. "According to the first element of the investigation, it was not possible for them to react."

    Sgt. Benoit Coutu of the provincial police said Leroux had been a member of the local Lac-Simon police force for six months.

    Another person was pronounced dead inside the home, and police say they believe he may have shot himself.

    Coutu identified him as Anthony Raymond Papatie, 22, a resident of Lac-Simon.

    Coutu could not confirm whether Papatie lived at the home where the incident occurred.

    Investigators say officers did not return fire. A second officer was also injured, but his life is not in danger.
