  • Print

Police have confirmed a 20-year-old man was killed Tuesday after being shot in the 500 block of Langside Street.

Const. Eric Hofley said Wednesday a man and woman, both of Winnipeg, were shot Tuesday and appear to be innocent bystanders.

The victims were simply walking down Langside Street together when they were both shot.

Both were transported to the hospital in critical condition where the woman is now in stable condition.

Nigel Dixon passed away in hospital Tuesday evening.

The investigation is still in its early stages and police are still on scene.

Hofley said the victims were not known to police, they have no suspects at this time, and there is no indication of gang activity.
