Winnipeg police continue to investigate a death in the Elmwood area over the weekend.

At approximately 5:45 p.m. Sunday, police responded to a report regarding an injured man in the 600 block of Harbison Avenue East. The man, 43, was found in the back of the residence, injured and unresponsive.

He was later confirmed deceased.

The investigation revealed the man had been drinking with several people at nearby home, when he became verbally aggressive to other partygoers. He was asked to leave following a minor altercation and was forced out of the residence.

Police say it appears the man collapsed soon after, at which point police and emergency personnel were called to the scene.

The cause of death has not been confirmed. Post mortem results are pending.

Police are continuing to conduct interviews. No charges have been laid at this time.
