Winnipeg homicide detectives are investigating the death of a man Saturday — a day after he was hurt in a booze-fuelled fight with a relative.

Police say the 19-year-old man and a male relative both agreed to the punch-up while they were intoxicated late Friday night.

Afterward, the 19-year-old went to a home nearby in the first 100 block of Bondar Bay in the Maples, but was found unresponsive the next afternoon. He was taken to hospital but died.

A police spokesman said homicide investigators and a forensics unit have been on scene. He called the investigation "unique" and added police have been communicating with the Crown's office.

"For one reason or another they got into a dispute or argument and decided to get into a fight," said Winnipeg Police Service spokesman Const. Jason Michalyshen. "The victim sustained injuries and was assisted to the residence on Bondar Bay and he was put to bed.

"Then he was checked on the next day and was found unresponsive."

Police say charges are pending, but those will be determined after an autopsy has been completed.
