According to the police authorities, the acts for which he is being prosecuted began at the end of September.

The man refused to obey the orders of police officers and a Taser was used on him, says a statement from the Winnipeg Police Service.

The first incident, in which his role is suspected, occurred on September 29, at around 3:30 a.m., when a man in his fifties years old was shot and attacked with bear spray. During this incident a group of people broke into an apartment in the 400 block of Sherbrook Street, south of Sargent Avenue.

The man was taken to hospital in critical condition and his condition was later determined to be stable, according to police.

The teenager involved in several other incidents has been remanded in custody.
