Two men face charges after a shooting early Sunday morning in Dartmouth.
On April 29 at 4:37 a.m., two HRP Patrol Officers were in the area of Roleika Drive and Caledonia Road when they heard multiple gunshots. Approximately ten minutes later, the officers, assisted by other patrol members, arrested two men walking on Roleika Drive, while a K9 team recovered a handgun nearby. Multiple bullet holes were also discovered in the rear of a residence on Roleika Drive but nobody was injured.
