A youth who was present when another teen was shot and killed in Terrace now faces charges himself.
The youth, who can’t be named because of his age, is facing a charge of manslaughter using a firearm and a charge of criminal negligence causing death involving a firearm.
The charges stem from an incident last February when police responded to a call where a 15 year old was found outside a Terrace residence suffering from a gun shot wound.
He later died in hospital.
Another 16 year old Terrace youth, who was also at the location and who knew the deceased, was taken into custody and was later released into custody of his parents.
The charged youth has been in court once, he was released and is slated to return to court in June.
