The Filipino community in Winnipeg is mourning the sudden death of 17-year-old Jaime Adao Jr., who was killed in a random attack at his home Sunday night.
Adao was home with his grandmother, when someone broke into their house.
While the teen was able to call 9-1-1, authorities arrived and found the boy being attacked with a weapon.
Officers shot at the attacker and both he and the boy were rushed to the hospital.
Adao died of his injuries while the suspect remains in critical condition.
A memorial service was held by Adao’s family at the Jesus is Lord church last night, where members of the community came to offer their condolences over the tragic incident.
