  • Print

A man already in custody for a violent hammer attack on an unsuspecting motorist in May has now been charged with a shooting incident that happened earlier the same day.

Winnipeg police said it’s alleged that the same man who attacked a motorist with a hammer at 2 a.m. on May 11 in the 1900-block of William Avenue is also the same person who forced his way into a home in the 500-block of Magnus Avenue and shot a 25-year-old man.

There were seven people in the home at the time, including a baby girl and a seven-year-old girl.

The man fled before police arrived.

Terrance Hanska, 22 has been charged with attempted murder, break and enter with intent, pointing a firearm, reckless discharge of a firearm, three counts of assault with a weapon, and other related weapons charges.

Hanska was already facing charges of attempted murder and other related offences from the hammer attack.
