At 7:42 pm Halifax Regional Police responded to the 0-100 block of Hastings Drive in Dartmouth for an assault in progress.
Upon arrival, officers discovered a man outside a building with what appear to be life-threatening injuries. He was transported to the Dartmouth General Hospital by EHS. Officers also located an unresponsive woman inside a building. EHS attended and pronounced the woman deceased. Police don't believe this to be a random act.
The area surrounding the building is closed to traffic and pedestrians. Members of the Integrated Homicide Unit have been called out to investigate.
