Throughout the evening of July 31, 2021, several adults were socializing together at a shared residence in the 400 block of Atlantic Avenue. Two of the residents became involved in a heated argument which escalated into a physical altercation. A 41-year-old male was assaulted and the suspect male fled the residence. Another resident later discovered the unresponsive victim and contacted 911.
On August 1, at approximately 3:30 a.m., emergency services located a deceased male who was transported to hospital, and police were notified.
The deceased was identified as William Randle SHARPE, 41, of Winnipeg. A subsequent medical examination determined his death to be a homicide.
