A teenaged boy is facing charges after a 21-year-old man was shot in Regina over the weekend.
Police were called to a home in the 2000 block of Wallace Street around 2:30 a.m. Sunday.
Officers found a 21-year-old man who had sustained an apparent gunshot wound. The man was taken to hospital by EMS with non-life threatening injuries.
A homemade device, commonly known as a “zipgun,” which is capable of firing a single round, was recovered from the home, police said.
On Monday, police arrested a suspect without incident. The 15-year-old boy, who cannot be named under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, faces charges including discharging a firearm in a reckless manner.
The accused made his first court appearance Tuesday afternoon.
