The Winnipeg Police Service has arrested a 40-year-old Lockport man for attempted murder in the city’s North End.

On Saturday, August 4 around 2:05 a.m. a police patrol found a truck with a woman inside who had been shot in her upper body near Andrews Street and Aberdeen Avenue. 

Police called for backup, and a man approached them and threw an item between two parked cars. Police said he then placed his arms in the air, and was arrested. The item found nearby was a firearm. 

The woman was taken to hospital in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to stable condition. 

Police believe the man, who owns the truck, got into a dispute with the woman and an acquaintance before the shooting.
