A woman wanted on a Canada-wide warrant in connection with a homicide in December has been arrested in Saskatoon.

The Saskatoon Police's guns and gang unit arrested 21-year-old Eiryn Ashlee Straightnose without incident at a home in the city.

The warrant for first degree murder was issued on December 13, 2019, less than a week after 35-year-old Winston Littlecrow died after being found shot on a city street.

A 17-year-old boy is already in custody and charged with first-degree murder.

On the morning of December 7, 2019, Littlecrow was found lying face-down on a sidewalk at the corner of 23rd Street W. and Avenue X N. in the city's Mount Royal neighbourhood, suffering from a gunshot wound to his back.

People tried to save Littlecrow, but the 35-year-old died as a result of his injuries, becoming Saskatoon's 16th homicide of 2019.

The 17-year-old has also been charged with possession of a firearm.
