At approximately 7:15 pm Halifax Regional Police responded to reports of gun shots being heard in the 5000 block of Drummond Ct in Halifax. Additional calls were received from members of the public who provided a description of a vehicle that was seen fleeing from the area shortly after the shots were heard.
The description of that vehicle was a White colored Hyundai hatchback with one or more of the windows smashed out. Several HRP vehicles attended the area and located a vehicle matching the description in the area of Gottingen St and Charles St in Halifax. The driver of the vehicle was suffering from gunshot wounds. The driver, a 20 year old man from Halifax, was attended to by HRP and EHS paramedics who transported him to hospital with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries at this time.
The investigation is in the very preliminary stages, members of HRP patrol, Forensic Identification members, Integrated Criminal Investigation, Emergency Response Team and an RCMP Police Service Dog are on scene. At this time Gottingen St is closed between North St and Uniacke St as HRP Forensic Identification Section members process the vehicle. We anticipate Gottingen St to reopen within the hour.
The investigation will be conducted by members of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division. There have not been any arrests at this time, however, investigators are seeking two suspects described as:
1) a black male, approx. 5’10,wearing blue jeans, long sleeved black shirt, a black hood facemask.
