BRANDON, Man. – Police in Brandon, Man., are checking to see if there’s a connection between two weekend shootings that led to the arrests of three men.
Officers were called to a home invasion Sunday involving masked men armed with an assault rifle and a handgun, although no one was hurt.
While on scene, they heard gunfire blocks away where about 30 shots were fired at a home, but no one was injured.
Officers arrested two men at the second location and found an assault rifle and a handgun near a vehicle they had briefly pursued, along with an ammunition magazine and a knife.
On Saturday, a 24-year-old man was charged with attempted murder after a shooting that left one person in hospital.
Police say the suspect was found hiding in a church where he allegedly told staff he had shot someone.
Investigators found a .22 calibre handgun in a nearby garbage container. (CKLQ, CTV Winnipeg)
