The HRP/RCMP Integrated General Investigation Section is investigating an incident where a number of shots were fired over the weekend in Halifax.
Last night at approximately 7:25 p.m., police responded to a home in the 0-100 block of Flamingo Drive in Halifax. The resident reported that on Sunday morning he discovered a tire on his vehicle was flat and assumed it had been slashed. Last evening he located a bullet in his front door and what appeared to be a bullet hole in one of his planters. An officer with the HRP Forensic Identification Section examined the damage to the tire and determined that it was consistent with being struck with a bullet.
Other residents in the area reported hearing what sounded like multiple shots being fired in the area at approximately 4 a.m. Sunday morning, however, police did not receive any reports until last evening. No one was injured and at this time there is no indication why someone would target this residence.
