Man gunned down on Hig­gins

Winnipeg Sun - - NEWS - — David Larkins

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing what led to a man in his

30s be­ing shot just out­side down­town late Mon­day.

Po­lice said a man on Hig­gins Ave. around 11:55 p.m. was shot af­ter hav­ing some sort of al­ter­ca­tion with an­other party on the street.

The vic­tim was then shot at close range, po­lice said.

“It ap­pears as though the two par­ties were some­how en­gaged and I’m not go­ing to be able to get into the de­tails of what we think that is at this point,” Const. Rob Carver said. “Whether they knew each other, whether they were just speak­ing, but it was not a ran­dom, drive-by shoot­ing.”

The vic­tim was sent to hos­pi­tal in crit­i­cal con­di­tion and was later up­graded to sta­ble.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call 204-986-6219 or Crime Stop­pers at 204786-TIPS (8477).
