Winnipeg homicide investigators are looking into the death of a man at an Alexander Avenue residence.
Police said they were called about a man who had been seriously injured in the 300 block of Alexander just before 2:30 Friday morning. Officers found the man dead.
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.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the homicide unit at 204-986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
