A Winnipeg construction worker was shot while walking along Powers Street in what appears to be a completely random and unprovoked attack.
Police said the man, 46, was walking to work Monday at about 6:30 a.m. near Pritchard Avenue when he was shot in the upper body. He was taken to hospital in unstable condition but has since been upgraded to stable.
“It was completely random, unprovoked, unexpected, there was no confrontation,” said Const. Tammy Skrabek. “He was just walking to work and he was just shot.”
The man’s co-worker, Laura Brooke, said she heard from her boss shortly after the man was shot.
