Calgary, AB,

Teen Charged - Homicide – Maddock Drive N.E.

The Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit has charged a youth in connection with a fatal assault that took place last week in Marlborough Park.

The 16-year-old male, who has been charged with first-degree murder, was arrested by officers on Monday, Nov. 20, 2017. He cannot be named under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

The teen is not the youth who was originally taken into custody at the scene of the homicide. That male was released without charge.

Following an autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, and with parental consent, the victim has been identified as Leslie SUN WALK, 15, of Calgary.

The accused and the victim were known to one other and the homicide was not random.
