Police say an unconscious man was found in the building just after 12 a.m. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The victim has been identified as Jonathan Wite of Ottawa.
No arrests have been made in connection to the homicide.
Ottawa Police say they are looking to identify three persons of interest: two men and one woman.
This is the sixth homicide in Ottawa in 2020.
