One of two soldiers wounded in a hit-and-run involving a "radicalized" 25-year-old man in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., has died, Quebec provincial police say.

Martin Rouleau, the 25-year-old suspect, was fatally shot on Monday after hitting two soldiers in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, a city about 40 kilometres southeast of Montreal.

The RCMP said Rouleau was known to provincial and federal law enforcement agencies.

Rouleau died of his injuries Monday evening, several hours after he was transported to hospital after being shot by municipal police officers at the end of a high-speed chase. Since the shooting involved municipal officers, provincial police are investigating.
