Teen found in Alberta, charged with 1st-degree murder in Winnipeg
Nairne Chapais shot outside house on Selkirk Avenue in May
A 17-year-old wanted on a Canada-wide warrant in connection with a gang-related killing in Winnipeg's William Whyte neighbourhood last month has been arrested in Alberta and charged with first-degree murder.
The teen was found in Red Deer and arrested by RCMP on June 17, the Winnipeg Police Service said in a news release on Tuesday.
Because he is a minor, the teen's identity has not been released.
Nairne Chapais died after being found with gunshot wounds on the front steps of a house on Selkirk Avenue, between Arlington and Parr streets, on May 21.
Two other men — Tyler Ryan Kenneth Jack, 21, and Clarence Raymon Scott, 30 — are also charged with first-degree murder in connection with the homicide.
They were taken into custody on May 27 after being tracked down at an Exchange District hotel.
