Police Request Public’s Assistance in Locating Two Men Wanted in Relation to an Attempted Murder
Investigators with the HRP/RCMP Integrated General Investigation Section are asking for the public’s help in locating two men wanted in connection with a shooting that happened yesterday in Halifax.
At 10:12 p.m., Halifax Regional Police responded to the 0-100 block of Forbes Street for a break and enter into an apartment. The victims informed officers that two men broke into the apartment, one was armed with a hand gun and confronted the occupants. The suspects chased a male occupant out of the apartment where at least two shots were fired. The suspects then fled the scene. No one was injured during the incident.
At about 12:50 a.m., patrol members observed a vehicle that was believed to be associated with one of the suspects in this incident. Officers attempted to check the vehicle after it went behind an apartment building in the 0-100 block of Windmill Road in Dartmouth. The lone occupant fled the scene on foot. A K-9 unit attended and conducted a track; however, the suspect was not located. Investigators believe this is not a random act as all the parties involved in this incident are known to one another.
