Police in Winnipeg, Canada, reported on Friday that a 32-year-old man was detained and charged with second-degree murder in connection with a mass shooting that killed four people on Sunday.

According to Winnipeg Police, Jamie Randy Felix, 32, was arrested and charged with four charges of second-degree murder and one act of attempted murder.

Crystal Shannon Beardy, 34; Stephanie Amanda Beardy, 33; Melelek Leseri Lesikel, 29, and Dylan Maxwell Lavallee, 41, were killed in the shooting in the city’s West Broadway neighborhood on Sunday, according to authorities.

Two of the victims died at the scene, and two succumbed to injuries later. A fifth person, a 55-year-old man, remains in the hospital in critical condition, police stated.

Police also revealed that Felix was taken into custody on Friday. It was not clear if he knew the victims or why he was at the home where the shooting took place.

In Canada, which has stricter gun laws than the neighboring United States, mass violence and shootings are rare.
