Winnipeg assault victim dies in hospital, suspect charged with second-degree murder

The victim of an attack in Osborne Village last month has died in hospital, police say.

Richard Lauren Fehr, 56, had been on life support since the May 25 assault but died of his injuries Wednesday.

Fehr was found that night in a parking lot near River Avenue and Osborne Street, with what police described as serious injuries. He was given medical care at the scene until an ambulance arrived and then rushed to hospital.

Police said they’ve arrested a suspect, 25-year-old Dorion Anthony Terrence Olson, who has been charged with second-degree murder.

According to police, the two men knew each other, so it wasn’t a random attack.
