WINNIPEG -- Members of the Winnipeg police homicide unit are investigating after officers were called to a home on Middle Gate, in Armstrong’s Point, Tuesday for reports of a stabbing.
Police were called to the first 100 block of Middle Gate around 7:38 a.m.
When officers arrived they found the body of a man with apparent stab wound injuries.
The man was later identified as 34-year-old Michael Bruyere of Winnipeg. Bruyere’s death is the 5th reported homicide in Winnipeg in 2020.
Around 4:23 p.m., police took a suspect into custody outside of a convenience store in the 600 block of McPhillips Street.
Investigators allege the victim and suspect knew each other and got into a dispute at the home in the early morning, which led to the stabbing.

The charges against Bonwick have not been proven in court.
