Three people are in custody after someone pulled out a gun at a lounge in the Fort Rouge area. 

Winnipeg police say shortly after 8 p.m. on Tuesday, two men began arguing with a 27-year-old man over a VLT machine. They then threatened to shoot up the lounge before fleeing the business. 

A short time later, three suspects returned with a firearm. No one was injured, and the suspects fled in a vehicle before police arrived. 

Thanks to the coordinated efforts of several police resources, the vehicle and suspects were quickly located and arrested in the 800 block of Weatherdon Avenue. 

 The vehicle was searched, and the following was located and seized:

  • 2 kilograms of cocaine - estimated street value $60,000

  • 100 oxycontin tablets – estimated street value $4000
  • Approximately $10,000 in Canadian currency
  • 2 x 3D printed handguns and ammunition (one firearm was loaded)

Three males, aged 21, 19 and 18, face a long list of charges, including unauthorized possession of a firearm x 2 and unauthorized possession of a prohibited device or ammunition x 2
