Police said a post-mortem has been ordered after the body of a 42-year-old man was found at his home in Ste Madeleine on Tuesday.
The deceased has been identified as Dennis Lakhan.
However, foul play is not suspected at this time, as police found no evidence of forced entry, and they were informed that Lakhan had suffered from depression prior to his death.
However, due to a firearm being found on the scene, and the fact that Lakhan had been shot, the post-mortem was ordered to officially rule out foul play.
Ste Madeleine police are investigating.
Anyone who feels like they need support is urged to contact Lifeline at 800-5588, 866-5433, and 220-3636 or the Suicide Hotline at 645-2800 or 645-6616.
The Ministry of Social Development has shared a list of resources for mental health and abuse support.
