Police have two men in custody after shots were fired on the 1500 block of Notre Dame Avenue early Wednesday morning, and said they're looking into whether it's related to a car crash shortly afterward.
Police said they arrested two adult men after shots were fired after 3 a.m. on Notre Dame.
After the police helicopter helped officers and police dogs with a search, one man was found near Notre Dame Avenue and St. James Street. A continued air and ground search led police to a second man on the 1700 block of St. James Street at about 3:45 a.m., who was also arrested.
A police spokeswoman said officers were still collecting evidence hours later.
"At this time, we don't believe that there's any reported injuries that have occurred," said Winnipeg Police Service spokeswoman Const. Natalie Aitken. No weapon had been recovered, said Aitken.
Both men were on foot when they were found, and Aitken said the relationship between the two is "unknown." No charges had been laid so far.
"It's still early on in the investigation," said Aitken.
She said police are still looking for people to interview.
Police said they're still trying to figure out if the shooting is related to a car crash that happened shortly later. At about 4:45 a.m., police saw an Audi A4 speeding near Erin Street and Notre Dame Avenue. Officers who were busy with the shooting told other units about the vehicle, before police discovered a crashed Audi in a parking lot near Notre Dame and Sherbrook shortly later.
The Audi had extensive damage. It's not a stolen vehicle, said police.
Officers arrested a man they saw allegedly running away from the Audi.
Police continue to investigate, and did not announce any charges against the man due to the crash.
