A man is in hospital after being shot Thursday morning in Winnipeg’s Old St. Vital neighborhood.
Officers went to St. Mary’s Road and Essex Avenue around 5:30 am to investigate a report that a man had been shot.
An injured man, in his 20s, was rushed to hospital in critical condition and is currently listed as unstable, a police spokesperson said in an email that initially labeled the incident as an assault.
The northbound lanes of St. Mary’s Road were blocked off for several hours in the area where the man was found.
They were reopened around 8 am but police still have a section of Essex Avenue blocked off.
Anyone with information that could help investigators is asked to call 204-986-6219 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
