Police are hunting for a man who stabbed and killed a cashier at a grocery store in Montreal. The woman was attacked around 8:30 p.m. Sunday inside the Maxi grocery store on Cremazie Blvd. near Papineau Ave.

Dozens of shoppers and employees were in the store when the man, who is believed to be a store employee, pulled out a knife and stabbed the woman in the neck.

She was rushed to hospital but her injuries were too severe. Police set up a perimeter around the store and used search dogs in an effort to locate the suspect, but as of Monday morning were unsuccessful.
