Death ruled a homicide – Dartmouth

The suspicious death that occurred in Dartmouth yesterday has been ruled a homicide.


At 8:49 p.m. on April 16, Halifax Regional Police responded to a report of an injured man inside a residence in the 0-100 block of Portland Street in Dartmouth. Upon arrival officers located a man suffering from life-threatening injuries. EHS pronounced the man deceased at the scene.
