Bombing suspect arrested in Winnipeg

A self-professed white supremacist wanted for attempted murder in Calgary was arrested in Winnipeg early yesterday morning after a two-hour standoff.

Kyle McKee, 24, was wanted on Canada-wide warrants for two counts of attempted murder in relation to a bombing at a northeast Calgary townhouse on Nov. 21.

Calgary police confirmed Winnipeg officials arrested McKee at 12:30 a.m. without incident after a standoff at a home in the city’s north end based on an anonymous tip.

“Officers phoned in to that residence and he was reluctant at first, I’m told, but after a couple hours he agreed to leave the residence and was arrested peacefully,” said Calgary police Sgt.

Keith Cain, adding officers believe McKee had his own vehicle.

“We were able to locate him, although it took a few weeks.”

A second suspect was arrested in relation to the same incident earlier this month.

McKee faces charges of attempted murder, possessing, making or controlling explosives, and possession of a weapon or imitation for a dangerous purpose when he returns to the city.
