One man is dead and another remains in hospital following a shooting at the Salisbury House on Pembina Highway at Stafford Avenue early Thursday morning.

Shots rang out at around 3 a.m. in the recently remodeled restaurant, located at 759 Pembina Highway.

Winnipeg police say a male suspect fired multiple shots in what appears to be a targeted shooting. Both men were taken to hospital, where one later succumbed to injuries while the second victim has been upgraded to stable.

While an arrest has yet to be made, police say “there are no concerns for public safety.”
