A 15-year-old boy is facing murder charges after a 16-year-old girl died at a home early Sunday morning.
Police were dispatched to a home on the 900 block of Cameron Street — near Grassick Park — around 12:30 a.m for a weapons call.
People in the area told 980 CJME there were a lot of cars parked outside of the home that night. Despite a lot of vehicles present, people said it was fairly quiet that evening. But around midnight, cars could be heard speeding off from the home and soon police were at the scene.
Police and EMS found an injured girl. Emergency medical treatment was provided but the girl was pronounced dead at the scene.
The coroner was requested at the scene as well as members of the Forensic Identification Unit.
Police detained numerous individuals in the home and continued to look for several people believed to have left the home before police arrived.
The investigation into the event led police to identify, locate and arrest a 15-year-old boy.
The 16-year-old has been identified and her family has been notified of her death. Her name will not be released by police due to the parents’ request and section 111(1) of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
The 15-year-old boy is facing second-degree murder charges. He made his first appearance in Youth Court Monday.
This is Regina’s fifth murder of 2018.
The investigation continues.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Regina police at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
