WINNIPEG — One man is dead and another is recovering from injuries following a Saturday morning shooting.
Winnipeg Police Service confirm that Theodoros Belayneh, 32, from Edmonton, Alberta did not survive his injuries following the early morning shooting on Donald Street and Stradbrook Avenue Saturday.
The second male victim has been upgraded to stable condition.
At around 3:00 a.m. Saturday, Winnipeg Police received several calls of shots fired in the Donald Street and Stradbrook Avenue area. The two men found were taken to hospital.
Zach Sirac and his family have lived in the neighbourhood for 10 years. He said it’s unusual and scary.
“Some other innocent person could have been walking by and this could’ve happened – it’s a scary thought,” Sirac said.
No suspect is in custody and the investigation is still on-going by the homicide investigation team.
Belayneh was arrested in May 2014 and charged, along with two other men, with more than 45 weapon offences after two loaded guns were found during a traffic stop on Corydon Avenue near Cockburn Street.
Police said at the time, one of the guns was previously stolen in Regina, Saskatchewan.
