Winnipeg police shot and killed a 27-year-old man outside a Charleswood home in the early morning of March 10, 2020. The led to a fatal officer-involved shooting early Tuesday morning. The Independent Investigations Unit of Manitoba (IIU), the agency that examines cases of police harm to civilians in the province, is investigating.

It has been reported that police responded to 911 calls about an attack taking place outside a home on the 100 block of Kowalsky Crescent at around 4:45 AM. The 27-year-old man was shot by police and taken to hospital in critical condition. He later died there. Two other residents of the home were also taken to hospital, one in stable condition and another whose condition has been reported as being “unstable.”

The IIU only reports at this point that police “engaged with the man” before shooting him. No additional details or clarification about what that “engagement” involved have been made public.
