The Major Crimes Unit says they are investigating after an altercation left one man with serious injuries alone on a road in the middle of the night.

A 40-year-old man is in critical but stable condition after being shot early Sunday morning. The Winnipeg Police Service's Major Crimes Unit says the victim and two males, a 15-year-old and a 20-year-old, got into an altercation. The suspects and victim did not know each other.

The argument in the area of Arlington Street and Notre Dame Avenue was first a verbal disagreement which resulted in the 40-year-old being shot. The man was found by officers at 12:24 a.m. on the road and was sent to the hospital in unstable condition. He is now in stable, but critical, condition.

A 15-year-old is being charged by police with three firearm and assault-related offences.

A 20-year-od is being charged with 11 firearm and assault-related offences. Police are not releasing the name of the 20-year-old as they are still investigating.

Both males are from Winnipeg and were detained in custody.
