Investigators say a group of people left the restaurant and got into a ridesharing vehicle, where they say a “disagreement ensued.”

They say the 28-year-old driver was assaulted with a firearm and several shots were fired before the suspects fled the area.

The driver was injured but did not need to go to hospital, police said Thursday.

The major crimes unit is investigating both shootings.

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