Police are investigating after a man was found injured, a woman was threatened and kids were bear sprayed in two separate incidents on Sept 29.
At 3:34 a.m., officers found an injured man in his 50s outside a residential building after responding to reports of a shooting in the 400 block of Sherbrook Street.
He was taken to the hospital in critical condition and later upgraded to stable.
Police believe a group had forced their way into a suite when the victim was attacked with bear spray and shot.
At 4:38 a.m. officers went to the first 100 block of Westgrove Way for a report of a male armed with a firearm and bear spray discharged inside a house.
Numerous people, including several small children, were affected by the bear spray but did not require medical attention.
Police believe a group had forced their way into the residence when a female in her 30s had a firearm pointed at her and a demand was made for her property.
At 6:40 a.m. officers who were still on the scene saw a male suspect in the area and took him into custody.
An 18-year-old man from Winnipeg has been charged and detained in custody.
Both incidents remain under investigation.
