Jason Collins, 09.04.2020. Shot dead – Winnipeg

September 4, 2020, Winnipeg
36 year-old. Shot dead

Winnipeg Police Service Chief Danny Smyth said during a news conference that officers arrived at the house on Anderson Avenue, between Salter and Aikins streets, around 4:38 a.m.

They said a 36-year-old man — who they did not identify, but who the family confirms was Collins — was shot just over 40 minutes later.

Emergency dispatchers got the 911 call from someone in the house reporting a man with a gun, the chief said. When officers arrived at the house, they heard a woman screaming in distress from inside before they forced their way into the home and found a man with a gun, a woman and a teenage girl.

Officers left the house to de-escalate the situation, Smyth told reporters, while the teen left out the back door. Shortly after that, the man walked out the front door and confronted officers, Smyth said, and that’s when an officer shot him.

Smyth would not comment on whether the man pointed a gun at police, citing the ongoing investigation by the Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba, which looks into serious incidents involving police in the province.
