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.
