2 homicide victims identified
Police in Winnipeg continue to investigate two separate homicides that have made residents feel uneasy.
In one case, the body of an injured man was found in Elmwood Park, near the 300 block of Henderson Highway, around 5 a.m. CT Friday.
Police identified the man as Corey Berry, 50. They did not say how he died and added that investigators are awaiting results of an autopsy.
As of Saturday, there were no arrests announced in relation to the man's death, which has some people in the area concerned.
"It's scary," Kirstyn Dalman told CBC News. "I have my little son and I don't know, [I'm] a little worried."
Another resident offered a similar view.
"You hear about it all the time, but you don't expect it to be in our neighbourhood," Renee Danchuk said. "It's in our neighbourhood now so it's a little scary."
Another homicide investigation was launched earlier on Friday after police responded to a call about gunfire.
Around 12:10 a.m. CT Friday, police responded to the 600 block of Maryland Street where they found a man was found with an upper body wound.
He was taken to hospital, but died.
He was identified Saturday as Allen Frank Crockford, 42.
There were also no arrests announced in that case.
The deaths of the two men bring Winnipeg's homicide numbers for 2012 to a total of 11.
