2nd man charged with shooting into group of teens, injuring 3
A second man is facing charges related to a scary incident in Pelican Narrows where RCMP now say two men fired a .22 calibre rifle into a group of teenagers, injuring three.
The alleged shooting took place around 4:25 a.m. CST June 14 in the small community about 280 kilometres northeast of Prince Albert.
According to police there was a disturbance at a home involving attempts to smash windows from the outside. Two men came out of the house and, armed with a rifle, took turns to randomly fire into a group of about 20 young people.
Three teens, 14, 15 and 19, suffered gunshot wounds. They were treated at the local health centre and released.
Initially a 29-year-old man was charged. Police said Friday their investigation led them to lay charges against a second man, 22.
Both are facing three counts of assault with a weapon and related firearms charges.
Scott Donald Roberts, 22, was arrested and charged Thursday. He is scheduled to appear in court in Prince Albert next week.
The charges against Travis Alphonse Sewap, 29, are still before the courts. His next appearance is set for Pelican Narrows provincial court later in July.
