A teenager who was mistaken for a bear outside a tent has been shot and killed in a remote area of northeastern Manitoba.
RCMP say four males were camping at Namay Falls on the weekend when one of them was woken up by what he thought was a bear close to the tent.
He fired a shot only to discover he had hit one of his camping buddies.
RCMP say the victim is a 17-year-old from Steinbach, Man.
An autopsy is scheduled in Winnipeg.
Police say they will not release the dead teen's name.
