Bar Italia shooting victim dies
One of the victims in Tuesday morning’s Corydon Avenue shooting has died.
Winnipeg police have confirmed the 37-year-old man was taken off life support.
Friends have identified him as Noel Ramirez. He and another victim were shot outside Bar Italia just after midnight Tuesday.
Friends said Ramirez was a father and chef and that the news Tuesday came as a complete shock.
According to eye witnesses, at least three or four shots were fired before the suspect fled.
Witnesses also reported seeing a black SUV leaving the scene.
Police have not released any information about a possible suspect or suspects.
Another person, a 28-year-old woman, was also shot but released from hospital.
The incident happened around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday morning when shots were fired outside the busy local bar.
Cockburn Street was taped off between Corydon Avenue and McMillan Avenue and remained closed until late into the day.
Forensics investigators spent hours placing evidence markers on the street next to the popular patio. Markers could also be seen further away from the bar next to Benson Park.
