CALGARY – A 17-year-old has been charged with murder in a Calgary teen’s death earlier this week.

Police had reported they were called to the Forest Lawn neighbourhood on Thursday evening for reports of a fight involving a weapon, and when they arrived they say they found a teen suffering from what appeared to be stab wounds.

He was taken to hospital in critical condition but did not survive.

On Saturday, police announced a 17-year-old male has been charged with first-degree murder in the case.

He cannot be named under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

The accused will next appear in court on Monday.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published June 8, 2024.
