Two people were taken to hospital after a shooting on Monday evening inside a second-floor suite on Selkirk Avenue, a man near the scene told the Free Press.
Three or four shots rang out shortly before 6:45 p.m. in a suite above North End Stop, a convenience store in the 300 block of Selkirk Avenue.
A man working in the store said he was shocked when gunfire snapped the calm of his evening shift — but what happened next was truly frightening.
"This guy fell out of the window," said Davinder, who didn't give his last name. "He wasn't shot but he was screaming."
A window just above the store's bright yellow sign was open and the screen hung precariously to one side.
Emergency crews arrived quickly and began treating a second man inside the suite.
"It was serious," the store clerk said. "It's scary to hear shots like that... to see someone hurt."
A man in his 20s was shot inside the suite, the Winnipeg Police Service said late Tuesday morning. He was transported to hospital in critical condition and was later upgraded to stable.
A second male was injured but had not been shot, police said. He was transported to hospital in unstable condition and was upgraded to stable.
No arrests have been made, the WPS said. The major crimes unit is investigating. Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to call investigators at 204-986-6219 or CrimeStoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
A stretch of Selkirk between Aikins and Robinson streets was closed to traffic while police investigated after the shooting. Yellow police tape was strung across the front of the store, which usually remains open until 2 a.m. but closed early after the violent incident.
