A 22-year-old man from Bunibonibee Cree Nation has been arrested on 16 charges related to a July 31 shooting incident, Oxford House RCMP said Aug. 4.

Keenan Grieves was arrested Aug. 2 on four counts each of assault with a weapon, pointing a firearm and discharging a firearm with intent as well as single counts of aggravated assault, careless use of a firearm, using a firearm in the commission of an offence and possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

He was remanded into custody pending a court hearing scheduled for Aug. 4.

Four people from Bunibonibee Cree Nation were transported to hospital in Winnipeg for treatment of gunshot wounds following the incident, which occurred around 9:30 p.m. last Sunday. 

As police were responding to a report of shots fired near the East Back Lake Graveyard, they received a report of three males being dropped off at the nursing station for treatment of what appeared to be gunshot wounds. A fourth male showed up at the nursing station a short time later with similar injuries.

The victims are 16, 17, 26 and 28 years old and were reported to be in stable condition following their transfer to Winnipeg.
