WINNIPEG — A dispute between business partners has resulted in attempted murder charges after a shooting at a Winnipeg storage facility.

Winnipeg police say a 28-year-old man was shot in the lower body in the 1000 block of Elgin Avenue on Tuesday night.

Officers learned the suspect and the victim were involved in a dissolving business partnership before the shooting. According to police, the suspect attended the business and fired a gun in the direction of the victim. The gun fired a second time during an ensuing struggle, causing the victim’s lower-body injury. A bystander was able to intervene and disarm the suspect, who fled the scene in a vehicle while threatening to kill the victim.
