A Kenyan student is among the three people who were early Sunday morning shot dead along Langside Street inside West Broadway in Canada.

The deceased, 29-year-old Melelek Leseri Lesikel, was studying Biology at the University of Manitoba.

According to police reports, Lesikel was killed in cold blood in the shooting at Winnipeg’s, West Broadway neighbourhood, with three others namely; Crystal Shannon Beardy (34), Stephanie Amanda Beardy (33), and Dylan Maxwell Lavallee (41).

Crystal and Stephanie Beardy have since been identified to be sisters


Lesikel’s friend and former roommate Nosherwan Khilji, who spoke after his death, remembered him as a “really soft, nice person” during their time as students in Winnipeg in 2014.

“He was a really soft, nice person. He was very friendly and had a smile always on his face. He was always very polite,” said Khilji as quoted by the Winnipeg Free Press.

Khilji said he spoke with Lesikel 10 months ago and that he (Lesikel) had applied to become a permanent resident of Canada after completing a Bachelor of Science degree.

Lesikel also told him that he previously worked at a local call centre, and was living on his own in an apartment in the Earl Grey neighbourhood.

Another friend of Lesikel, Pamela Obonde, who doubles up as the President of the Kenya Association of Manitoba, confirmed that the deceased was a member of the University of Manitoba Campus Liberals in 2017.

She also revealed that Lesikel had one brother in the United States and other family members in Kenya.
