The murder was committed around 2:30 a.m., in front of the Côté-Sud bar-terrace, located at the corner of routes 132 and 263, in the Gentilly sector.
The most probable hypothesis studied by the investigators of the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) is an altercation between the victim and the suspect would have degenerated.
On the face of it, no weapon would have been used in the murder. The victim was allegedly beaten to death.
His death was pronounced on the spot.
Later that night, SQ officers proceeded to the alleged killer.
The 38-year-old man was to be met by Sûreté du Québec crimes against the person investigators during the day on Wednesday.
The identity of the victim has not been released by authorities.
