A man shot by Winnipeg police after robbing a Domo gas bar last Thursday is believed to be responsible for two other robberies in the city.

Police were called to the Domo at Wardlaw Avenue and Donald Street June 19 for a report of someone acting suspicious. Police arrived to find the 21-year-old man wielding a knife and wearing a balaclava. When he refused to put the weapon down, he was shot in the upper body.

The 18-year-old clerk is said to be the brother of the suspect and was not injured during the robbery.

Andrew Christopher Lebrun of Winnipeg has been charged with three counts of robbery, two counts of assaulting a peace officer, three counts of disguise with intent and possession of a weapon, and failing to comply with a probation order.

Police say Lebrun is also responsible for a gas bar robbery on April 1 in the 400 block of Academy Road, and another at a convenience store in the 100 Marion Street on June 14.

He remains in custody.
