Winnipeg: Two men are in custody after a Winnipeg teen was shot with a gun allegedly stolen from an off-duty RCMP officer.

Winnipeg police say a 16-year-old girl was shot early Saturday morning after an altercation in a convenience store parking lot.

She was rushed to hospital in critical condition.

Deputy police chief Danny Smyth says investigators believe the gun was stolen Friday evening from a marked RCMP vehicle parked outside the officer’s home.

When officers tried to arrest one of the suspects on Sunday, Smyth says an armed standoff ensued but ended without incident.

Matthew Wilfred McKay, who is 22, and 25-year-old Matthew Andrew Miles are facing numerous charges including attempted murder and theft.
