WINNIPEG — Four men have been charged in the shooting this week of an RCMP officer in western Manitoba.
An 18-year-old from the Sandy Bay First Nation faces charges including two counts of attempted murder.
Three other men from Portage la Prairie, who are between 21 and 30 years old, face charges including break and enter and weapons-related counts.
RCMP say shots were fired on Wednesday night when two officers responded to a break and enter at a home in Onanole, a small resort community near Riding Mountain National Park.
One officer, Cpl. Graeme Kingdon, was seriously injured and was airlifted to hospital in Winnipeg.
RCMP say Kingdon remains in hospital but is recovering and doing well.
