Man wanted on Canada-wide warrant for violent home invasion
A suspect in a violent home invasion is now wanted on a Canada-wide warrant, said Winnipeg police. Officers said Shane David Ferguson is considered to be dangerous.
CTV News has learned Ferguson is a former full patch gang member of the Zig Zag Crew.
In June 2009, armed suspects forced their way into a residence in the 900 block of Westminster Avenue.
The suspects assaulted a 22-year-old male victim inside the residence, who suffered multiple injuries to his upper and lower body.
Investigators believe the victim and suspects previously knew each other.
Following an investigation into the home invasion by the organized crime unit, a Canada-wide warrant was issued for two Winnipeg suspects, Joel Gary Geddes, 26, and Shane David Ferguson, 26.
RCMP arrested Geddes in Swift Current, Sask. on July 2.
CTV News has learned Geddes is also a former full patch Zig Zag Crews member.
He was convicted of manslaughter in 2003 and served 13 months in prison for killing an 18-year-old man by hitting him in the head with a baseball bat.
Police also believe a third male suspect may have been involved in the June 2009 home invasion.
Officers said Shane Ferguson may currently be in the Winnipeg area. Members of the public are advised not to approach him as he is considered dangerous.
Ferguson is described as a white male, five foot eight inches (172 centimetres) in height, weighing 220 pounds (99 kilograms), with a heavy build, brown hair with brown eyes.
Anyone with information on Ferguson's location is asked to call investigators at 986-6222 or Crime Stoppers at 786-8477.
