The investigation is continuing my members of the WPS Homicide Unit.

INSIDER COMMENTARY:

The man killed in this incident is the 7th reported homicide victim in Winnipeg this year.

Last year the 7th homicide was reported on April 25 – forty-eight days later than this year.

While homicide is a difficult crime to predict, it certainly seems 2016 will be a busy year for the WPS Homicide Unit.
