Update: Cops search for suspect involved with Winnipeg St. incident

Victim was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, RCMP say public is not in danger

According to a neighbour who wished not to be identified, the house in question is a “drug house” with a sole owner who rents out to multiple individuals. Despite online accounts that heard shots fired in the area, the neighbour said she did not hear anything and Const. James Grandy would not confirm this.

Grandy said one victim was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries and the RCMP were securing the house to search for the suspect in question. He said the public is not in danger and the victim and suspect knew each other, and that both were known to RCMP.
