A 40-year-old Innisfail man has been charged with manslaughter.
Innisfail RCMP were called Wednesday at about 10:30 p.m. to the area of 51st Avenue and 49th Street, where there was a report of an injured man on the sidewalk.
The man was taken to hospital by EMS, where he died of his injuries.
An autopsy was conducted Friday.
Malcolm Nathaniel Bourgeois, 40, of Innisfail, has been charged with the manslaughter of Winston “Drew” Grant, 27, of Innisfail.
Bourgeois has been remanded into custody and will appear in Red Deer provincial court Wednesday.
One Innisfail business owner, who asked not to be named, said he saw police at the scene interviewing people when he got to work Thursday afternoon.
“It’s unsettling, definitely,” he said of the incident. “It makes a person make sure their eyes are open.”
He has only lived in the town for about two years, but the incident has made him more aware of possible dangers, he added.
The Zoo, an Innisfail hotel and bar located next to where the incident occurred, published a statement on Facebook Thursday.
“In regards to what happened outside of our bar (Wednesday) night: our condolences go out to all family, friends and anyone affected in this tragic time. Thank you to everyone who helped, you did amazing,” the statement said.
