A 19-year-old woman has died after an alleged case of domestic violence in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.

Police arrested a 23-year-old man who was at the home on Grand Boulevard, just above St-Jacques Street. He's being held for questioning.

Police said they received several calls from neighbours around 8 a.m. about noise and sounds of violence coming from an apartment.

"As I was getting my son ready to go to school, I heard a man's voice yelling quite loud, and it sounded very urgent ... like there was more behind it than just voices. As I looked across the street I saw police cars," said neighbour Walter Zeliger.

Officers on the scene found the woman with serious injuries to her head and upper body.

It left some neighbours feeling worried.

"I live here with my wife and my child and it doesn’t feel good knowing that such a level of violence could be so close to me. It’s not a pleasant feeling," Zeliger said.

The woman was rushed to the hospital but later died.
