From Shot fired in rent dispute

A Winnipeg woman is in custody after firing a rifle in a dispute over money at a home in the North End on Saturday night, police said.

The shooting happened just after 8:40 p.m. CT Saturday, at a home in the 100 block of Parr Street.

A 22-year-old man and a woman, 24, were arguing over rent money with a woman believed to be their landlady when their dispute turned into an armed confrontation, police said.

A woman, 35, pulled out a rifle, pointed it and fired, Const. Jason Michalyshen said.

“Obviously [she] wasn’t happy with the direction the conversation was going and took it to another level,” Michalyshen said on Sunday.

No one was injured in the shooting, police said. Police seized a firearm at the home.

The woman remains in custody and has been charged with a number of weapons offences, Michalyshen said.
