WINNIPEG — A Lockport man is in police custody after a woman was found with an upper body gunshot wound on Saturday morning.
Officers were on patrol in the area of Andrews Street and Aberdeen Avenue when they came across the woman in a parked truck at around 2:05 a.m.
She was taken to hospital in critical condition, where she was later upgraded to stable.
