The Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) responded to several crime scenes on Sunday, including a potential accidental shooting and two stabbings.
The first crime report was on Sunday just past midnight. North District officers responded to a shooting at a residence in the 300 block of Aberdeen Avenue.
In a news release, police found an adult male, believed to be in his thirties, on-site with a gunshot wound on the lower portion of his body. The officers provided emergency medical care and were transported to the hospital in unstable condition, later upgraded to a stable condition.
After an initial investigation, it is assumed the victim had accidentally fired the weapon, therefore shooting himself. Further investigation is underway.
The same news release indicated that two stabbings also happened that same day.
About an hour later, at 1:30 a.m., officers from the West District responded to a stabbing report on the 600 block of Stewart Street.
Police located an injured woman at Stewart and Ness, bleeding heavily and they quickly performed emergency medical care. Being transported to the hospital in critical condition, the woman was later upgraded to a stable condition.
"A scene was subsequently located at a hotel in the 3700 block of Portage Ave," says the release. Currently, no arrests have been made.
At around 2:15 p.m. on the same day, the WPS responded to the second stabbing report at a convenience store in the 500 block of Ellice Ave.
Once on-site, the WPS found an injured male in his twenties slumped against the building. Emergency medical care was performed and officers had to use a chest seal until he was transported to the hospital in critical condition and later upgraded to a stable condition.
When available for questioning, the victim said that he had been assaulted on McMicken Street and managed to make it to the store to contact authorities. He did not provide any additional information to the investigators.
The stabbing investigations have been handed over to the Major Crimes Crime Unit. Anyone with information regarding any of these incidents is asked to contact Major Crimes at 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
