WINNIPEG police have identified the city’s seventh homicide victim.

Police were called to a shooting in the lane behind the 400 block of Beverley Street at about 6 a.m. Tuesday, where they found two women with gunshot wounds.

Lori Gordon, 49, had died by the time officers arrived, while the other victim, a 35-year-old woman, was taken to hospital. The second victim has been upgraded to stable condition, police said Wednesday.

No arrests have been made.

Man charged with forcible confinement

VIRDEN RCMP have arrested a man after a person was injured and held against their will in Sioux Valley Dakota First Nation last month.

Police were called on Feb. 24 about an injured person being held against their will on the First Nation, about 50 kilometres west of Brandon.

Officers found the victim in a home in the community, but the suspect had fled.

On March 2, two women, aged 34 and 37, were charged with assault, resisting arrest and obstruction.
