Halifax Regional Police have two adult males in custody in relation to a weapons complaint.
At approximately 11:00 pm last night , Halifax Regional Police responded to the 2300 block of Gottingen Street in Halifax after local residents reported hearing possible shots fired. Halifax Regional Police beat members also heard the shots fired and were on scene within seconds.
A local business sustained damages as a result of the gun fire. A suspect vehicle was observed fleeing the scene southbound on Gottingen Street. A unidentified male, on foot, was observed fleeing the scene northbound on Gottingen Street.
