The man confronted the group, police said, as there had been recent vehicle break-ins in the neighbourhood, at which point an argument took place and one of the suspects shot the victim before they fled the area.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
