A video of shooting at a 7-11 in Winnipeg is blowing up on social media.

It shows police shooting a man armed with a machete - at least nine shots can be heard after officers yelled for him to drop the knife. 

The suspect was taken to hospital in critical condition - an officer was treated in hospital and released.

At least two people recorded the whole thing, and posted the videos to Facebook.

Police say getting that close was highly dangerous.

The incident happened at a West End 7-11 Thursday night (Nov 21).
