WINNIPEG – A Winnipeg man has been charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Jason Stinson on the banks of the Red River on June 12.
Steven Anthony Morrisseau, 29, was arrested Thursday afternoon and is being held in custody.
An off-duty police officer found the body of Stinson, 49, near the water’s edge in Stephen Juba Park north of The Forks at about 5:35 p.m. June 12. An autopsy determined he’d been shot dead the same day.
Police now believe Morrisseau and Stinson, who were roommates, were drinking together under the train bridge at the south end of the park when they got in an argument. That argument ended when Morrisseau pulled out a gun and shot Stinson, police allege.
