The deceased victim has been identified as Zachary Paul Rae, an 18-year-old man from Winnipeg.

On Oct. 6, homicide unit investigators arrested a 17-year-old male suspect and charged him with manslaughter and two counts of failure to comply with a sentence and three counts of failing to comply with condition of a release order.

Investigators believe the victim and suspect were known to each other, and had been involved in an argument just prior to the homicide.
