Winnipeg police found several firearms in a home where a man was shot in St. Norbert Saturday evening.

Police went to the 100 block of Dubois Place at about 7:45 p.m. after receiving a report of a gun shot and an injured man in the neighbourhood.

The injured man went to a nearby hospital as officers arrived. Police quickly found a home they believe is related to the shooting and went inside — no one was home, but police found several firearms, including a .22 calibre rifle. One of the guns was used in the shooting, says Winnipeg Police Service Const. Jay Murray.
