On January 16 at approximately 3:15 a.m., Halifax Regional Police responded to a weapons complaint which originated in the area of Portland Estates Boulevard and Portland Street in Dartmouth. A man contacted police to report that he and a passenger had been driving in the area of Portland Estates Boulevard and Portland Street when he noticed a vehicle following him. The man pulled his vehicle to the side of the road and the second vehicle, which was a dark colored SUV occupied by two men, approached. The two drivers became involved in a dispute and the driver of the SUV pointed a handgun at the man and then left the area. The man contacted police and provided a description of the vehicle. Patrol officers and Emergency Response Team members located the SUV near a residence in the 0-100 block of Hillview Drive in Dartmouth where two men were arrested in a wooded area near the residence. Two 18-year-old men are in custody for weapons-related offences and members of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division are investigating. A decision on charges will be made at the conclusion of that investigation. Police do not believe this to be a random act as the involved people were known to one another.
