Three men are in hospital following a shooting in a suburban Winnipeg garage Sunday night.

Monday, 15 August 2011

Neighbours on Lou Peltier Crescent, in a recently-built subdivision called Kildonan Green, told CBC News a man stood at the edge of a driveway around 9 p.m. and used a handgun to open fire at people inside the garage.

Police will only confirm three men were shot and initially sent to hospital in critical condition. Two of the victims remain in critical condition while the third was upgraded to stable condition on Monday.

Officers were knocking on doors throughout the evening and had blocked off a large area of the subdivision with yellow tape.

On Monday, the scene was littered with 38 evidence markers as investigators used a metal detector to scour the dirt yards, which do not yet have grass lawns.

Residents said they ran into their homes when they heard the gunfire. They said the man who lives in the house moved in just a few months ago, in about March.

One resident said he's seen several young men coming and going from the home very early in the morning on numerous occasions.

Several witnesses told CBC News a number of young men in their 20s or early 30s were in the garage when the shooting happened.

A turf war between the Hells Angels and Rock Machine motorcycle gangs has made headlines this summer in Winnipeg. Two businesses were firebombed and there have been a number of drive-by shootings.

Those incidents have so far not been linked to the shooting Sunday.
