Man charged with attempted murder, armed robbery in Winnipeg shooting: WPS

Winnipeg police say a man has been charged with attempted murder after an armed robbery Tuesday morning.

At 11:30 a.m. police say they were alerted to a man who had been shot and was seriously injured.

Officers found the 21-year-old victim at a convenience store in the 800 block of Logan Avenue. Police say he had life-threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital in critical condition and has since been upgraded to stable condition.

With the assistance of video surveillance, it was determined the suspect attended the store, selected a drink and left without paying.

The victim was an employee of the store – he saw the theft, followed the suspect outside and confronted him.

During the confrontation, police say the suspect pulled out a sawed-off shotgun and shot the victim before running away.
