This marks Winnipeg’s 43rd homicide of 2021.

Const. Jay Murray told 680 CJOB that seeing such a high number is concerning.

“There’s somewhat a reflection on the level of violence that we’re seeing,” Murray said.

“The nature of homicides is that they’re also partially random. To have a homicide count in the 40s is concerning, and something we don’t like to see.”
