Winnipeg Police Service have arrested a 14-year-old boy in connection to four separate shootings that killed one woman and left three others in hospital over a 24-hour period on July 1 and 2. The first shooting occurred shortly before 2:30 a.m. on Canada Day when a 44-year-old man was found on Balmoral Street near Cumberland Avenue. He had been hit by a vehicle, but it was later determined he had been shot prior to the collision. He remains in hospital in critical but stable condition.
"At about 3:15 a.m., a 27-year-old woman and an 18-year-old man were shot while walking in the 400 block of Flora Avenue. The woman died immediately and the man was taken to hospital where he remains in stable condition, police said. Murray said the two victims are believed to be cousins. Police identified the woman on Thursday as Danielle Dawn Cote. She was Winnipeg’s 20th homicide of the year. The city set a new record for homicides in 2019 with 44."
"The suspect was taken into custody peacefully in North Kildonan and a firearm believed to be used in all four shootings was recovered soon after. The 14-year-old boy has been charged with first degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and other firearms offences. The first degree murder charge implies premeditated intent."
Here's the deal. Winnipeg has a gang problem that is tied to the drug trade which is controlled by the Hells Angels. This is what the gangs used to do back in the /80's. They's recruit young offenders to do B&Es and to do shootings becuase young offenders did less time than adults.
Since this 14 year old was charged with murder, he can be named and tried as an adult.
Hells Angels president Dale Sweeney sentenced to 11 years for cocaine trafficking
Did the Hells Angels execute Reno Lee for a drug debt?
12 year old selling crack in Winnipeg
The Mad Cowz work for the Hells Agnels. The Manitoba Warriors do not.
Famous Amos from the Zig Zag crew was caught on video cutting crack for the Hells Angels.
Dale Donovan (Deli), who now goes by Dale Kelland, is president of the Manitoba Nomads. Deli was president when they were all busted in that huge drug ring where Famous Amos was caught on video cutting crack cocaine for the Winnipeg Hells Angels. Not only were the Zig Zag crew selling crack for the Winnipeg Hells Angels, but they were also paying the club protection money to protect them from rival drug dealers. Before Dale Donovan, the former local chapter president, Ernie Dew, was sentenced to 13-years for drug trafficking. After Dale Donovan the next local president, Dale Sweeney was sentenced to 11 years for cocaine trafficking.
Can we see a pattern yet? Now that they are contracting out their murders and drug trafficking to 12 and 14 year olds just remember the words of David Giles. Giles said not every member of the Hells Angels is involved with criminal activity but anyone who uses the name of the club for criminal activity must have that activity approved though the local executive. That would included drug trafficking and murder and would therefor implicate the local president.
