16-year-old girl dies after being shot by Winnipeg police

A 16-year-old girl who died after being shot by Winnipeg police was driving a stolen vehicle used in the robbery of a Liquor Mart, police say.

A group of five teens, all 15 or 16 years old, are accused of robbing the store in the Sage Creek neighbourhood just before 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

They allegedly stole alcohol while threatening to harm staff, before leaving in a stolen SUV.

A police cruiser that responded to the robbery was rammed by the SUV, which then sped off, police said.

Other police units responded and gave chase. The SUV collided with a number of other cars before a final crash brought it to a stop at the intersection of Lagimodiere Boulevard and Fermor Avenue.
