Never a gun registry around...

...when you really need one...

Two men were killed and the young woman was in critical condition after the shootings Saturday evening near a housing complex in Winnipeg's north end.

Police say a 13-year-old girl was shot first and seriously wounded. Fifteen minutes later, an adult male was gunned down and killed a few blocks away, followed 20 minutes later by the fatal shooting of another man in a third location.

Michalyshen said officers are looking for a person who may be male, aboriginal, in his twenties, wearing dark clothing and between 5'8 and 6'0 in height.

One witness described seeing a man riding down the street on a mountain bike "looking like a ninja."

-- HALIFAX -- A 27-year-old Nova Scotia man was shot and killed at a city apartment building as he attempted to deliver a pizza on Saturday night, says a spokesman for the Halifax police.

The police officer said investigators are troubled by the incident, in part because they've found no evidence so far that the shooter knew the man dropping off the food.

If this turns out to be a random incident it's that much more concerning and something we'll have to put our efforts behind in an effort to solve," said the constable.

LAST WORD: Vote Fuzzy-Bunny Smitherman...
