On February 29, 2024, at approximately 1:00 pm, Gimli RCMP responded to a report of a male who had discharged a firearm towards two individuals during a dispute which occurred at a residence located on Lake Avenue, in Gimli.

Officers met with the victims and attended to the residence where the incident occurred. Inside the home, a 32-year-old female, from Kinonjeoshtegon (Jackhead) First Nation, was located and arrested after officers located an unsecured firearm in the home.
