Teen shot by Winnipeg police during 7-Eleven armed robbery charged

Winnipeg police have laid charges against the teenage suspect they shot during an armed robbery at a West End convenience store last month.

The 16-year-old boy was shot by an officer as police responded to an armed robbery in progress at the 7-Eleven on Ellice Avenue and Arlington Street Nov. 21.

Dramatic cellphone video of the shooting quickly made the rounds on social media.

That video shows an officer standing outside the convenience store draw his weapon as a suspect armed with what appears to be a large knife, exits the store.

Loud shouting can be heard ordering someone to “drop the knife” several times, before an officer shoots towards the suspect several times.
