Teen, 16, in critical condition after being shot by police outside 7-Eleven

A 16-year-old teenager shot by police outside of a Winnipeg convenience store on Thursday evening is in hospital in critical but stable condition.

Police pulled up to the 7-Eleven near the corner of Arlington Street and Ellice Avenue around 5:30 p.m. after being called about an armed robbery in progress.

In videos obtained by CBC News, the teenage boy could be seen banging something against the glass doors from the inside of the store.

As police surround the front of the convenience store, he walks out holding something above his head. Witnesses have told CBC it was a machete while police would only call it a weapon.

The teen continues alongside the front sidewalk across the path of an officer standing with his service pistol drawn and pointed.

Moments later nine shots can be heard and the teen drops to the pavement.
