Violence Breaks Out On Fairford First Nation
Three males are in custody following a violent afternoon yesterday on the Fairford First Nation.
RCMP responded to a report of a bear macing at a home shortly after noon time, and as they were responding another call came in reporting a shooting had happened at the same location.
A 34-year-old male suffered a lower body gunshot wound, and was treated and released from hospital, while another man was shot at but uninjured.
A 21-year-old male was sprayed with bear mace.
Shortly after 2pm, three males from the Fairford First Nation - ages 16, 18, and 25 - were apprehended by police.
Charges are pending, and the three remain in custody while RCMP investigate.
Supporters Rally For Bus Beheading Victim
The executive director of the Manitoba Schizophrenia Society says a rally by the group Justice for Tim McLean only creates fear.
Chris Summerville says the rally won't inform the audience about the science schizophrenia, or what is known about people who suffer from the illness getting better.
Carol de Delley, McLean's mother, spoke out against the Criminal Code Review Board decision to allow her son's killer to move to a group home.
About 50 people joined the rally at the Manitoba Legislature yesterday afternoon.
Hospital Inquiry Begins Tomorrow
An inquest set to begin tomorrow in Winnipeg will look at hospital policies on the nighttime discharging of elderly or frail patients who live alone.
Manitoba's chief medical examiner called the inquest following the death of a 68-year-old woman, who died from a blood clot in her lungs hours after she was discharged from hospital.
She collapsed on her doorstep in January of 2012.
Months later, two other patients from a different hospital died before getting inside their doors after being sent home in a taxi.
The health authority updated its discharge guidelines, but family members of those involved say little has changed.
