About 25 people turned out Sunday afternoon to a makeshift roadside memorial to pay tribute to a 12-year-old boy killed in a violent altercation in north-central Winnipeg.
Teddy bears and flowers were left on a tree on the median of Burrows Avenue, not far from where the boy was stabbed Friday evening. A note encouraged people to light a candle in memory of the boy.
The vigil saw those gathered pay tribute to the boy as traditional Indigenous drumming and song filled the air. They declined to speak to media.
