Winnipeg police have released the name of the man who was killed in a fight outside a North End apartment complex early Friday morning.
Phillepp Rick George Amos, 25, died as the result of stab wounds and blunt force trauma following a fight with another man near Robinson Street and Flora Avenue.
A 38-year-old man was also injured in the altercation. He was transported to hospital in stable condition. The incident happened at around 4 a.m. Friday.
Amos, who also went by the name Phillip McDonald, was a father of four who led a troubled life marred by extensive involvement with the justice system and stints in jail.
At the time he was slain, Amos was out on bail and bound by a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew as well as wanted by police after failing to turn up in court on Tuesday.
He was facing charges of breaching a now-expired probation order and also in connection with the seizure of 20 rounds of ammunition from a backpack in the North End on July 27.
He was arrested by officers in the tactical support team following a foot chase that snaked from the nearby Norquay Community Centre in Point Douglas to Selkirk Avenue, court heard in August.
The Winnipeg police stolen-auto unit considered Amos among their highest-risk offenders, according to prosecutors. He was being monitored in public by a community corrections worker and a probation officer.
A source told the Free Press on Friday Amos suffered from fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD).
Amos was Winnipeg's 19th homicide in 2013 and the third this month.
