Manitoba RCMP are investigating after a 12-year-old girl was shot at a remote cabin on Burntwood Lake.

Police were notified on Wednesday after two family members were able to travel to the Burntwood Lake Lodge and call for help.

Helicopter EMS flew to the lodge and then travelled by boat to the remote camp to provide treatment to the victim. The injured girl, from Pukatawagan, was taken to hospital in Winnipeg with serious injuries, where she remains.

RCMP officers travelled by helicopter and boat to access the scene.

No further details were provided, including whether any charges will be laid.
