The Ottawa Police Service said on Twitter that it received calls at 9:41 a.m. reporting a stabbing in the area of Somerset Street West and Arthur Street, near the Kowloon supermarket.
Officers arriving on the scene found one man with stab wounds, police said.
The victim was transported to hospital with life-threatening injuries and was later pronounced dead, according to OPS.
