An 18-year-old Portage la Prairie man has died after being involved in a shooting with Portage RCMP.
Officers were called to a domestic disturbance at an apartment building on Hazel Bay around 1:05 this morning. A second report shows a female victim was banging on a door, saying her boyfriend was threatening to kill her. Police found the woman safe in that apartment.
As the RCMP went to the apartment where the male suspect resided, police say the man confronted them with a weapon. It was at this time officers deployed their conducted energy weapons and an officer discharged their firearm.
The man was later pronounced dead at the scene. One officer received minor physical injuries.
The Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba will continue to investigate. No further details will be provided at this time.
