One Suspect in Winnipeg Murder Case Apprehended, Manhunt Continues for Second Suspect


Winnipeg, Canada - In a significant development in the murder case of 46-year-old Damion Wayne SKRUMEDA, the Winnipeg Police Service announced that one of the outstanding suspects has been apprehended. On September 13, 2023, SKRUMEDA was fatally shot in the 600 block of Mulvey Avenue, leaving the community in shock and prompting a citywide manhunt.


Authorities had issued arrest warrants for two suspects, Randy Flett and Jerrin MacIntyre, who had remained at large since the tragic incident. However, the latest update on the case has brought some closure to the victim's family and friends.


On October 2, 2023, at approximately 12:00 a.m., a vigilant Traffic Division member patrolling the Princess Street/Pacific Avenue area spotted a confirmed stolen vehicle. As the police vehicle approached, the stolen vehicle pulled over, and the driver quickly exited in an attempt to flee on foot.


The alert officer swiftly apprehended the fleeing suspect, who was subsequently identified as Randy Blake Flett, aged 25. To their surprise, Flett was found to have an outstanding warrant for Second Degree Murder in connection with Damion Wayne SKRUMEDA's death.


Flett was promptly taken into custody and handed over to the Homicide Unit for further questioning. This arrest is seen as a significant breakthrough in the murder investigation, but the search for the second suspect, Jerrin MacIntyre, 28, of Winnipeg, remains ongoing.


Jerrin MacIntyre is described as approximately 5'9" tall and weighing around 135 lbs. He is considered armed and dangerous, and authorities urge the public not to approach him. Instead, they are encouraged to provide any information that may lead to his apprehension.


The Winnipeg Police Service is actively seeking the assistance of the public in locating Jerrin MacIntyre. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to contact the Homicide Unit at 204-986-6508. Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS or online at winnipegcrimestoppers.org.
