Teen involved in shooting death released from police custody

A 16-year-old boy connected to the death of a 15-year-old boy could face charges

A 16-year-old boy connected to the death of a 15-year-old boy could face charges and has been released from police custody to his parents on numerous conditions.

Terrace RCMP said charges of criminal negligence causing death and manslaughter are being forwarded to Crown Counsel.

On Feb. 10, Terrace RCMP reported that officers were called to a residence on Molitor Street where they found a 15-year-old youth suffering from a gunshot wound around 10 p.m. Feb. 9.

The youth was transported by BC Ambulance to Mills Memorial Hospital where he later succumbed to his injury, said police at that time.

A 16-year-old Terrace youth, who was also at the residence, was taken into police custody, reported police.

It is believed that the two individuals knew each other and the public is not at risk as a result of this incident, said police.

Terrace RCMP and the North District Major Crime Unit continue to investigate.

Meanwhile, a statement from Coast Mountains School District superintendent Katherine McIntosh said that while the school district cannot comment or give out any information on the shooting, “if any individuals alleged to be involved were connected to a school, district staff would ensure that all appropriate safety and support procedures be followed.”

If you have information about this crime, contact the Terrace RCMP at 250-638-7400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800-222-TIPS, online at www.terracecrimestoppers.ca or by texting TERRACE plus your message to 274637 (CRIMES).

If your information leads to an arrest, you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.
