TWO young girls were in a Magnus Avenue home when violence erupted into gunfire early Friday.
Police tape was around the home Friday morning, but a lone bullet hole was still visible in the small white house next to the Andrews Street Family Centre.
Police said an attacker or attackers went into the home in the 500 block of Magnus Avenue, set off pepper spray inside, and shot a 25-year-old man who lived at the home in the lower body.
Also inside the home were a baby girl and a seven-year-old girl, as well as a 37-year-old man and his 26-year-old wife, a 59-year-old woman and a 30-year-old man.
Surveillance in the area allegedly showed seven people heading across the street to the home before the violence started, said a resident.
"We don't know who, or if there was an intended target," said Winnipeg Police Service Const. Jason Michalyshen.
Police said the shooting victim is now in stable condition.
Michalyshen said he wasn't aware of anything stolen in the course of the violence and officers are in the early stages of an investigation.
Friday morning, a single blue plastic glove was abandoned on the sidewalk outside, and a pair of women's shoes sat in front of the home.
Neighbours said different generations of a family lived in the home.
One resident said surveillance collected from nearby indicated eight shots were fired, which police didn't confirm.
The pepper spray led to non-life -threatening injuries, said police.
Police said they were interviewing people Friday and didn't have anyone in custody.
Police have asked anyone with information to call 986-6219, or Crime Stoppers at 786-8477 (TIPS).
