WINNIPEG police have taken the rare step of reissuing a plea for the public's help finding a man wanted for a gangland-style slaying in a city restaurant.
William Edward Moar, 24, was gunned down at Johnny G's on Main Street in February in a killing justice sources say was tied to disputes between rival gang members.
Several witnesses in the restaurant at the time said a man dressed in black entered the bar shortly before 2 a.m. and fired two shots. The first, missing Moar, almost hit an employee behind the bar. The second struck Moar in the head.
Police announced in mid-March they had identified a suspect in the slaying. But six weeks have passed and police are seemingly no closer to finding the fugitive, and another call for public help was released Wednesday.
Morgan Van Bone, 19, is wanted on a charge of first-degree murder.
Bone is aboriginal, 5-9, 230 pounds, with a heavy build.
Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 204-986-6508, 204-986-6222 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
