Lanark County Interval House is saddened and outraged by the events in Almonte this morning.

This violent shooting leaves one local leader dead and his daughter gravely injured.  We believe that this tragic incident is connected to domestic violence as the alleged shooter is understood to be the daughter’s former common law partner.

Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the families involved and the Almonte Community.

As the only dedicated anti-violence agency in Lanark County, we will remain vigilant in our efforts to end violence against women and we will continue to engage with community and local leadership as ending violence is a community responsibility.

Executive Director
