Man targets Journal de Montreal in bomb threat

An apparently despondent man surrendered to police without resistance about 3:15 p.m. yesterday after threatening to set off an explosion on the doorstep of the Journal de Montréal. The 59-year-old had locked himself in a four-door black Nissan Versa hatchback. The initial call to police was placed at 2:25 p.m., Montreal police Constable Daniel Lacoursière said. During exchanges with officers, the man was heard shouting: "Kill me! Kill me or I'm going to blow up the place!" The building, from which 253 newsroom and office workers have been locked out since Jan. 24, 2009, was evacuated.
