WINNIPEG - RCMP say two teenaged boys and a 28-year-old man are facing charges after a 13-year-old boy was shot in northern Manitoba.
Officers say they responded to a report of shots fired and located the victim, who was suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to the nursing station and later transferred to a hospital.
An investigation led officers to identify a suspect vehicle, and RCMP in The Pas, 90 minutes west of Moose Lake, set up a highway roadblock, stopped a suspect vehicle, and arrested six people.
A 15-year-old boy was charged on an outstanding warrant on two counts each of failing to comply with a release and failing to comply with a probation order; a 13-year-old boy was charged on an outstanding warrant for robbery and three counts of failing to comply with a release order; and Delaney Patchenose, the adult among the three accused, was charged with discharging a firearm, careless storage of a firearm, and unauthorized possession of a firearm in a vehicle.
Police say they are continuing to investigate, and the two teen suspects may face new charges in connection with the shooting. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Moose Lake RCMP at (204) 678-2399, or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers online or by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
