Winnipeg police have charged a 19-year-old man following a fatal stabbing during a road rage incident last summer.

On July 23, 2020, at 5:25 p.m., police responded to a report of a man stabbed in a parking lot at the northwest corner of Lagimodiere Boulevard and Fermor Avenue. He was transported to hospital in critical condition but succumbed to his injuries.

The victim has been identified as 43-year-old, Ryan Kelly Legary.

Members of the homicide unit continued to investigate Legary’s death and on February 11, they arrested Rahim Ahmadzai.

It’s believed the two men who were unknown to each other, became involved in a road-rage incident and pulled into a nearby Tim Hortons parking lot where a verbal dispute turned deadly when Ahmadzai stabbed Legary.

Ahmadzai has been charged with manslaughter.

He was detained in custody.

The charge has not been proven in court.
