A Winnipeg cab driver whose distress signal was activated was taken to hospital in critical condition on Thursday morning but died.
Officers responded to the signal at about 5:25 a.m. and found the taxi and driver, who had been seriously assaulted, on Burrows Avenue between McGregor and Andrews streets.
Police tape and several cruiser vehicles surrounded a Duffy’s Taxi vehicle with its distress light on in the city’s William Whyte neighbourhood early Thursday.
Burrows Avenue was closed to traffic in both directions between McGregor and Andrews streets, where the cab was located.
Homicide investigators ask anyone with information to contact police at 204-986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
