ATV chase leads to arrest

A Lake Manitoba First Nation man is in custody following a shooting Tuesday night.

The shooting occurred at approximately 7:15 p.m., when RCMP units from Ashern and Lundar were dispatched to a home on the reserve. Upon arrival, officers learned a 27-year-old man suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound had been transported to hospital.

The male suspect fled the scene on an ATV.

RCMP used trucks and ATVs to follow the man, eventually catching up to him without incident.

A 41-year-old man is facing numerous charges. An RCMP release said, charges pertaining to the shooting are still being determined.
