A 46-year-old man who was stabbed Tuesday during an argument at the Old Brewery Mission died of his injuries two days later.

In a release issued Friday, the Montreal police said the victim, Karim Chehab, died Thursday at the hospital he was taken to after officers responding to a 911 call found him badly injured inside the shelter for the homeless. When he was taken to the hospital, he was reported to be in critical condition. The suspect, Oussama Lahmaidi, a 26-year-old resident of St-Léonard, was arrested near the shelter.

The following day, Lahmaidi was charged at the Montreal courthouse with attempting to murder Chehab. A Quebec Court judge ordered that Lahmaidi undergo a mental health evaluation. His case was scheduled to return to court on Thursday, but was carried over to an unspecified date.

The homicide was the 24th reported on the territory covered by the Montreal police so far this year. There were 21 reported during the corresponding period last year.
