‘Serious occurrence’ in West End sends 1 to hospital, Winnipeg police say

One person is in hospital after an incident in Winnipeg’s West End early Friday morning, police say.

Few details have been released so far about the incident, which police described on Twitter as a “serious occurrence.”

An officer with the Winnipeg Police Service’s duty office said it happened around 2 a.m., but would not reveal any details about the person taken to hospital.

Police initially shut down traffic in both directions on Ellice Avenue between Furby and Langside streets, but said the street was open in both directions again just after 9:30 a.m.
