An investigation is underway into a homicide in Thompson.

RCMP say a 49-year-old man from the northern Manitoba community was transported to Thompson General Hospital in critical condition after being assaulted outside a local hotel on Thursday.

He later succumbed to his injuries at the Health Sciences Centre.

Police have charged 22-year-old Donald Timothy Massan of Thompson with second-degree murder in connection with the crime. Massan will make his first court appearance on Tuesday, May 25.

An autopsy on the victim is scheduled for a later date in Winnipeg.

The two men did not know each other.
