Canada Infant among injured in North End shooting: Winnipeg Police Service
Player grades: With a little help from above, Mike Smith steals a point for punchless Oilers
Oilers 0, Jets 1 (SO) I’m not sure if the ice was bad at Bell MTS Place, or maybe they forgot to freeze the pucks. Whatever the issue, both the Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets struggled to hit a friendly stick with a pass or the opposition net with a shot. The two teams ground their way through a frenetically-paced 65 minutes of hockey without a goal to show for it. The scrambly affair was ultimately decided in the shootout when the Jets were finally able to solve Mike Smith, while the Oil never did figure out Connor Hellebuyck. The Oilers held the edge on the shot clock at 28-23 including 26-13 at 5v5, but the Jets had a 11-8 edge in Grade A scoring chances.
It's been a violent weekend.
Winnipeg police are investigating after someone barged into a home near Salter Street and Flora Avenue Sunday afternoon and fired off a shotgun at least once — injuring four people, including an infant.
First responders brought the victims to hospital, two in critical condition and two in stable condition.
Winnipeg Police Service Const. Rob Carver could not tell media what led to the North End shooting, but noted investigators have an idea of what occurred. He also could not share whether police have made any arrests in connection to the shooting or whether it was gang-related.
Justin Medlock leads Blue Bombers over Stampeders with late field goal
WINNIPEG — Zach Collaros wasn't really surprised by the way his debut with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers ended. Collaros guided the offence down the field late in the fourth quarter and Justin Medlock booted a 34-yard field goal as time expired for a 29-28 victory over the Calgary Stampeders on Friday. Could it have been scripted better?

"It has been a stunning... 18 hours," Carver said.
There were three slayings late Saturday and early Sunday.
"Now we've got a shooting with multiple victims," Carver said. "We're seeing increasing levels of violence... more guns on the street, more violence."
"When I first saw the call, I was very, very concerned," Carver said. "We've got what looks like a shotgun attack and four people including an infant hit... if everybody can come away from this with non-life-threatening injuries, it's almost a miracle."
Carver told reporters it's likely the victims will recover.
