Winnipeg police responded to reports of a gunshot outside of a rooming house downtown Sunday night.

Officers found a woman outside of the building upon arrival.

Shania Chartrand, 21, was later pronounced dead at hospital.

Police called the killing “another very tragic event” for the city. Police hope by releasing Chartrand’s identity it will lead to information to help solve the case.

It was Winnipeg’s seventh homicide of the year.
