Suspect charged in alleged drug-related shooting

  • Print

A Winnipeg man has been charged with shooting another man involved in a drug deal last year.

Winnipeg police said today that Travis Terry Lee Thayer, 21, of Winnipeg, was arrested on Wednesday and has been charged with numerous offences including attempt murder with a firearm, use of a firearm during an offence, and possession of a dangerous weapon.

Police said Thayer is in custody at the Winnipeg Remand Centre where he was being held for an unrelated charge.

Last year, police said a 42-year-old man was rushed to hospital in unstable condition on Nov. 2, at about 11:30 p.m., after being found lying on the boulevard in the 700 block of Simcoe Street after being shot. The man was later upgraded to stable condition.

Police said the man was shot after getting into an argument with a woman while they were selling crack cocaine. The woman had called for help and several people came to help, including a man armed with a firearm, who shot the victim.

Three weeks later, police arrested a 26-year-old woman.

Dana Lynn Gunn, was charged with aggravated assault and several firearm related offences.

Police are continuing to investigate.
