A 14-year-old male youth wanted Canada-wide has been charged with two counts of attempted murder and several other counts.

On Friday morning at about 11:50 a.m., patrol members, the tactical support team and members of the canine unit responded to the 400 block of Pacific Avenue regarding reports of a male possibly armed with a gun.

A witness recognized the male.

A short time later, the previously wanted male was located hiding in the area of the 400 block of Elgin Avenue and arrested.

On June 24, at about 1:30 a.m., the Winnipeg Police Service responded to the area of Sherbrook Street and Wolseley Avenue regarding the sound of shots.

The investigation revealed that a firearm was discharged in the direction of a parked vehicle, striking one of the occupants. The suspect fled and a 17-year-old victim made his way to hospital after sustaining serious injuries.

A Canada-wide warrant was issued for the 14-year-old.

The male youth remains in custody at the Manitoba Youth Centre.
