3 people are killed and 2 seriously injured in shooting in Canada

Three people died and two others were injured during a shooting this Sunday morning (26) in the Canadian municipality of Winnipeg, Manitoba, authorities said.

The Winnipeg Police Service said in a news release that the shooting happened shortly after 4 a.m., nearly a mile west of downtown.

Officers who arrived at the scene found five victims “with gunshot wounds,” according to the release.

“This incident occurred in a multi-suite residence; no additional information regarding a possible motive is available,” said Officer Jason Michalyshen, a Winnipeg police spokesperson, in a statement.

A man and a woman were pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Three of the victims were taken to a hospital and one of them later died from her injuries.

Two victims, a man and a woman, remain hospitalized in critical condition, Michalyshen said.

The identities of the victims have not been released and police said the investigation into the shooting is ongoing.

“The Winnipeg Police Service Forensic Services Unit will be on scene for an extended period of time due to the severity of this incident,” officials said.

The Winnipeg Police Service’s 2022 Annual Statistical Report, released in May, showed that violent crime rates in Manitoba’s capital last year reached their highest levels since 2009, including a record number of 53 homicides, according to the report .
