16-year-old charged after Winnipeg officer-involved shooting

A 16-year-old boy who was arrested Saturday following an officer-involved shooting has now been charged.

The teen, who can not be named under the Young Offenders Act, has been charged with robbery, possession of a weapon, pointing a firearm, possession of a firearm and use of an imitation firearm among other charges.

Police say it started when officers were called to the 200 block of Adsum Drive after a resident said he was confronted by two armed men who demanded money.

Police say they found the two suspects near Pipeline Road and Adsum Drive and that’s where the officer-involved shooting took place.

The 22-year-old male suspect was killed. His name has not been released.

The Independent Investigations Unit is investigating.
