Police Fatally Shoot Winnipeg Robbery Suspect

Police Fatally Shoot Winnipeg Robbery Suspect”

A suspect is dead after being shot by police early Wednesday morning.

Police, however, said the man was involved in a series of incidents in the hours leading up the fatal shooting, including allegedly stealing a vehicle that led police on a chase.

It started Tuesday just after 11 p.m. Officers were called to a home in the 800 block of Pritchard Avenue where a woman had been assaulted by a man with a firearm.

Police have released very little information only saying shortly before 1:00 a.m., "members of the Winnipeg Police Service were involved in a serious incident in the 400 block of Alfred Avenue".

Police said the woman in the first incident was known to the suspect, but the woman whose auto was allegedly stolen was not known to him.

About 30 minutes later, a woman was pulling into her garage in the 1000 block of Pritchard Avenue when the same man carjacked her with a gun.

Police then responded the 1400 block of Notre Dame Avenue at around midnight, where an armed man reportedly robbed a business.

"My priority was to get my family upstairs", he said.

The Independent Investigation Unit (IIU) of Manitoba will be overseeing the investigation.

The Free Press is at the scene and will update this story.
