Canada: German man charged after 1 person dies in Manitoba hunting incident


A suspect is in court after a Tuesday-night hunting incident.

RCMP Manitoba says two men were hunting separately in a wooded area off of Silver Bridge Road, south of Elma, a community roughly 70 kilometres east of Winnipeg, on Tuesday before they were called about a shooting.

Police say at around 7:55 p.m. they were called to the area. When they arrived, they found a 59-year-old man from Rosengart shot dead. They say the victim was shot by a 45-year-old German citizen man. The two did not know each other.

The suspect is being charged with Manslaughter, appearing in court Thursday.

Lac du Bonnet RCMP, Major Crime Services, RCMP Forensic Identification Services, and Manitoba Conservation Officer Service are investigating.
