A knife-wielding man killed by police Tuesday morning after going on a deadly rampage inside a Wolseley care home had been exhibiting bizarre behaviour in recent weeks that had neighbours baffled.
Winnipeg police are now equally stunned, saying they had no choice but to shoot the armed suspect when they arrived at Madison Memorial Lodge on Evanson Street just after 8 a.m. to find a horrific scene inside.
One elderly tenant -- identified by residents as Alex Kowalchuk -- had suffered a gruesome neck injury that would take his life. A second senior had also suffered knife wounds.
The suspect was still armed with the weapon when confronted by police in the communal kitchen of the facility, which is located in the basement of the four-storey building.
