Three police agencies were involved in an arrest after a drive-by shooting in Roseau Rapids.
On Jan. 7 at 4 p.m. Manitoba First Nations Police officers were called to a residence after a caller said two rounds from a high powered rifle were fired into their residence.
The caller described a grey SUV from which the shots came, and said it drove onto his driveway before the shooter began firing. There were three people in the home who were unhurt.
Police responded and noticed the vehicle parked only a few houses away.
Along with the Morris RCMP and Altona Police, MFNP officers set up a roadblock.
Police say the vehicle was ordered to stop when it arrived at the roadblock and two occupants were ordered out of the vehicle.
"The suspect for the shooting was initially resisting police but was quickly controlled and handcuffed," they said in a Jan. 9 press release.
A high powered rifle and ammunition were seized by police.
Conrad James Nelson, 39-years-old, from Roseau Rapids is remanded into custody and faces the following charges: Careless Use of a Firearm x 2, Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose, Weapons Possession contrary to an Order, Fail to Surrender Authorization x 2.
A female that was also arrested was released with no charges.
