The three shootings that rocked the North End on Saturday night still haven’t led police to a suspect, but a detailed description of the man believed to be responsible for at least one incident has now been released.
Police are looking for a male in his late teens or early 20s, Aboriginal in appearance and approximately 6 feet tall with a skinny build. The suspect is being sought in relation to the shooting in the 200 block of Stella Walk that left 13-year-old girl in critical condition at around 8:25 p.m. She has since been upgraded to stable condition.
The suspect was also wearing dark coloured clothing and left the scene riding a dark coloured mountain bike.
The second shooting occurred at about 8:40 p.m. in the 400 block of Dufferin Avenue, claiming the life of 35-year-old Thomas Beardy of Winnipeg.
The suspect in this incident is described as an adult male or female who was wearing dark clothing.
At about 9:15 p.m., a third person was shot in the 400 block of Boyd Avenue, which killed 52-year-old Ian Layton MacDonald of Winnipeg.
The suspect in this case is described as an Aboriginal male about 5’8″ tall and wearing dark clothing. He may have been accompanied by a woman.
Police haven’t yet linked all three shootings and are asking for the public’s assistance with any information they may have to call them at (204) 986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
Meanwhile, Attorney General Andrew Swan vowed Monday to make whatever additional provincial government resources available to the Winnipeg police in assisting with their investigation.
