Head-on collision kills two

Two people are dead following an accident on Highway 6 Friday evening.

The collision occurred shortly before 8:30 p.m. RCMP detachments from Stonewall and Lundar, along with emergency services personnel, arrived on scene to find a four-vehicle crash on Hwy 6 near Hwy 411 in the R.M. of Woodlands.

A 26-year-old man from The Pas and a 46-year-old man from the Woodlands area died in the collision. Their names will not be released.

According to the initial investigation, the 26-year-old was travelling north when he attempted to pass a semi-trailer. He collided head-on with a truck that was driven by the 46-year-old man.

Two other vehicles, a car and an SUV, collided with the truck following the initial impact. Five people were also injured, including two young children. All were treated for minor injuries and eventually released.

Alleged teen-shooter charged

A 14-year-old male wanted on a Canada-wide warrant has been charged with two counts of attempted murder.

On Friday morning at about 11:50 a.m., patrol members, the tactical support team and members of the canine unit responded to the 400 block of Pacific Avenue regarding reports of a male possibly armed with a gun.

A witness recognized the male.

A short time later, he was located hiding in the area of the 400 block of Elgin Avenue and arrested.

On June 24, at about 1:30 a.m., the Winnipeg Police Service responded to a report of shots being fired in the area of Sherbrook Street and Wolseley Avenue.

The investigation revealed a firearm was discharged in the direction of a parked vehicle, striking one of the occupants. The suspect fled and a 17-year-old victim made his way to hospital after sustaining serious injuries.

The youth remains in custody at the Manitoba Youth Centre.
