WINNIPEG — Winnipeg police officers have made an arrest after a suspect pointed a gun at a security guard at a Corydon Avenue business and threatened to kill him.
Officers responded to the incident, with the help of AIR1, the K9 unit and the tactical support team, around 11:15 p.m. on Sunday.

The suspect then ran away and got rid of the gun.

The security guard, a 28-year-old man, declined any medical treatment.
The major crimes unit investigated and charged Hothaifa Hassan, 20, with several offences including assault, uttering threats—cause death or bodily harm, and pointing a firearm. None of the charges have been proven in court.
