SHAMATTAWA, Man. — RCMP in northern Manitoba say the province's Independent Investigations Unit has been notified after a shooting involving police left a man with serious injuries.

Police say in a news release that the detachment in Shamattawa, over 700 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg, responded to a report Saturday afternoon about a male walking on a road carrying a gun.

They say officers immediately began patrolling the area, and during their patrols, they heard several gunshots and headed toward them.

The release says they located the 22-year-old suspect outside of a residence, and an interaction occurred with the officers that resulted in shots being fired.
