Winnipeg police officer cleared in suspect’s shooting during fatal West End home invasion

A police officer who shot a man accused of killing a Winnipeg teen during a horrific and random home invasion in the West End last year will not face charges in connection with the shooting.

The shooting happened after police were called to the report of a break-and-enter in progress at the home in the 700 block of McGee Street around 9 p.m. March 3.

Police said officers arrived to find the suspect, a 29-year-old man, attacking 17-year-old Jaimie Adao, who had been alone with his grandmother in the home and called 911 when the suspect broke in.

At the time, police said they had to shoot the man to stop the attack.

The suspect and the victim were both taken to hospital in critical condition, where Adao died.

The accused attacker survived the shooting and his case remains before the courts.

Ronald Bruce Chubb was charged with second degree murder, attempted murder and failing to comply with probation in connection with Adao’s killing.

Chubb is considered innocent until proven guilty.
