The HRP/RCMP Integrated Major Crime Unit is looking for the public’s assistance in relation to the shooting that took place yesterday in Halifax.
At 10:50 p.m., police responded to Uniacke Street for a report of multiple shots fired. On arrival, officers were confronted by an hostile crowd of upwards of 50 people who had gathered in the area. Due to the level of aggression directed towards officers, multiple units were dispatched to the area to gain control of the situation. As a result, three women were arrested for breach of the peace and a Conducted Energy Weapon (CEW) was deployed to gain control of one of the women. All three were later released from police custody.
A short time after the initial call, a 23-year-old man attended hospital with gunshot wounds. He later underwent surgery for non-life threatening injuries. The investigation is in its early stages. Investigators with the HRP/RCMP Integrated Major Crime Unit are urging anyone who was in the area and may have information about the incident or the suspect(s) to contact them at 490-5333 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477), submitting a secure web tip online at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca or texting a tip - Tip 202 + your message to 274637.
