A young Winnipeg man is being sentenced today for a brazen daylight murder over a case of mistaken identity.
The accused cannot be named because he was a youth at the time of the shooting.
20-year-old Nigel Dixon was gunned down on Langside Street in the West End back in 2013.
It’s believed the accused thought he was a member of a rival street gang.
Prosecutors are seeking an adult sentence.
That would mean life in prison with no parole for at least seven years.
