Man critically wounded in overnight Winnipeg police-involved shooting


WINNIPEG — A man is in critical condition after an overnight police-involved shooting in Winnipeg.

The Independent Investigation Unit — Manitoba's police watchdog — says officers were called to a north-central residence a few minutes after midnight.

The team says once there, an officer fired his gun after they were confronted by a 25-year-old man.

He was taken to hospital and underwent surgery.

No officers were injured.

The IIU, which investigates all serious incidents involving police in the province, has taken over the case.
