Ex-hospital worker faces more charges of threatening co-workers

Video sent to colleagues allegedly showed suspect holding a gun

A former housekeeping employee at Grace General Hospital in Winnipeg, who was out on bail after being accused of e-mailing a threatening video to his co-workers in September, has been arrested for allegedly threatening ex co-workers at another city hospital.

Guy Harry Shelemy is facing new charges of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and failing to comply with conditions of a recognizance, according to police.

He was already charged with uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm, two counts of careless use of a firearm, weapon or ammunition, and mischief enjoyment of property.

Shelemy allegedly went to St. Boniface General Hospital on Oct. 5 and threatened some of his former Grace Hospital co-workers. The incident was reported on Oct. 11.

In the original video, the threat was non-specific but Shelemy was allegedly holding a firearm in the video, police said.

He was fired from his job after his arrest on Sept. 26. Police previously said the suspect was upset about how the hospital handled a co-worker's employment status.
