More details are out after police were involved in a serious incident Wednesday evening.

The Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) said in a release that police were involved in a shooting at 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday, in the area of Panet Rd. and Nairn Ave. That intersection was closed for 10 hours while police investigated.

On Wednesday, January 9, 2019, at approximately 8:35 p.m. Winnipeg Police Service General Patrol officers responded to a report of an assault with a weapon in the area of McLeod Ave. and Raleigh St.

Police began to pursue the suspects as they fled the area. Due to concern for the safety of citizens and officers the police quickly called off the pursuit.

A short time later the suspect vehicle was spotted stopped in traffic at the intersection of Panet Rd. and Nairn Ave.

Police initiated a containment block, however the suspect vehicle rammed through. At this time officers discharged their firearms to stop the threat of bodily harm/death to them and other police officers.

The suspects again fled and a second pursuit then led to the area of Marion St. and Archibald St. The suspect vehicle left the roadway and began driving along railway tracks. Three suspects, a female and two males, were subsequently apprehended along the railway lines and taken into custody.

Officer injured by moving train

During the arrest of the suspect along the railway line a WPS Street Supervisor was struck by a moving train. He was treated at hospital and released.

A 23-year-old male suspect had suffered a wound as a result of a gunshot. He was conveyed to hospital where he was treated and released. He remains in custody at this time.

The Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba (IIU) has been notified and has assumed responsibility for the investigation.
