Police said the shooting was drug related and the men have gang connections.

Winnipeg police said the incident started as fight inside the home and allege 32-year-old Cameron Kinnavanthong shot Sumner multiple times, causing critical injuries.

However, it took days before police were able to arrest Kinnavanthong.

On June 20, police said they were called to a road incident involving him in the area of Logan Ave. and Keewatin St.

Kinnavanthong allegedly pointed a gun at another motorist.

Inside the home, they found multiple weapons including a very dangerous high-capacity assault rifle.

Kinnavanthong was charged with second-degree murder, plus several other charges related to possession of weapons and other restricted devices.
