Winnipeg police are investigating the death of a man in the North End as a homicide after he was found in the front yard of a home in the 600 block of Pritchard Avenue Sunday.
Police said William George Sumner, 27, was taken to hospital where he died. It is the 12th homicide of 2017.
Police and emergency crews responded at about 6:15 p.m. Sunday to the residence located near the corner of Pritchard Avenue and McKenzie Street where they found an injured Sumner and rushed him to hospital.
Const. Rob Carver said police are familiar with the residence, but said Sumner didn't live there.
"There were a number of people at that location when emergency services arrived," Carver said, noting those individuals are part of the investigation.
It did not appear to be a social gathering, he said.
An autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause of death.
