Mall shoot­ing case ad­journed

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

A teen who was shot at the Char­lot­te­town Mall af­ter con­fronting the po­lice with a gun will be back in court next month to pick a date for sen­tenc­ing. The teen, who can­not be named be­cause he is a young of­fender, called 911 to re­port a fake shoot­ing on April 3. A Char­lot­te­town po­lice of­fi­cer shot him af­ter the teen re­fused to drop a pis­tol that looked real. It turned out to be a pel­let gun. The teen told po­lice he had pre­vi­ously at­tempted sui­cide and wanted them to kill him. His next court date is sched­uled for Aug. 24.
