A 26-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder in connection to a shooting in Winnipeg's West Kildonan neighbourhood.
The shooting happened Dec. 22, 2013, in the parking lot of an apartment building in the 400 block of Partridge Avenue.
- Police search for 2 suspects in north end home invasion
Police were called at about 9 p.m. about a crash after a van hit a car parked in the lot. When they arrived, they found a 23-year-old man inside the van, suffering from a gunshot wound.
He was rushed to hospital in critical condition and later upgraded to stable.
The shooting was the result of a drug deal that went bad, police say. The shooter fled, as did a passenger who had been in the van.
In the days after the shooting, police say the suspect was also involved in a home invasion in the city's North End. That happened Dec. 27 at about 2:30 p.m. in the 400 block of Boyd Avenue.
Two men forced their way into the home and assaulted a man and a woman inside, police said, adding the victims were then robbed of cash and drugs.
The 26-year-old suspect was arrested Thursday in the area of Camile-Sys Street, in the city's Transcona neighbourhood.
He has been charged with two counts of attempted murder, break and enter, and numerous counts of weapons and drug offences.
He has also been charged with five counts of failing to comply with conditions of a court order and failure to comply with a probation order.
He is detained at the Provincial Remand Centre.
