“Members administrated first aid at the scene until paramedics were able to arrive, she was transported to the hospital for treatment and underwent treatment throughout the night but unfortunately passed away this morning as a result of the injuries she sustained,” said Craig Douglass, RCMP spokesperson to MyPGNow.com.

Douglass added this is the first confirmed homicide of 2020 in Prince George.
