Winnipeg police are investigating the city’s 43rd homicide of the year after an incident in the North End on December 25.
Officers came across a man down on the sidewalk at the intersection of Salter Street and Redwood Avenue at around 10:20 a.m.
Police determined the man had been assaulted and he was transported to hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
The victim has been identified as Gordon Edward Pashe, 37.
Anyone with information is asked to contact homicide investigators at (204) 986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
