  • Print

Winnipeg police continued to investigate a death in Elmwood on the weekend.

At about 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 a home, injured and unresponsive.

He was later confirmed dead.

Police said their investigation revealed the man had been drinking with several people at a nearby home early Sunday morning, when he became verbally aggressive. He was asked to leave following a fight and was forced out of the residence. Police said he wearing minimal clothing unsuitable for the cold. Temperatures early Sunday hovered around -19C.

Police say it appears the man collapsed soon after leaving the party. It does not appear he knew the owners of the home near where he collapsed. He did not live in the neighbourhood.

Cause of death has not been confirmed. No charges have been laid.
