Police have arrested two additional suspects in connection with shootings that took place last evening in Cole Harbour.
On November 30th, 2014, at approximately 7 p.m., RCMP, with assistance from Halifax Regional Police, responded to a complaint of a shooting on Arklow Drive, Cole Harbour.
Preliminary investigation revealed that four males wearing bandanas forced themselves into a residence and fired shots. Three victims, a 17 year-old male, 18 year-old male and 17-year-old female, were transported to hospital; two with serious injuries. Shortly after the shootings, the suspects ran along connecting pathways in the Arklow Drive and Merrimac Drive area towards an awaiting vehicle near the residence. This vehicle has since been located and seized. The vehicle is described as a metallic red four-door Honda Civic with a temporary vehicle permit sticker on the front windshield.
Last evening, two male suspects; ages 17 and 18, surrendered and were placed in police custody. They are currently being interviewed by investigators.
At approximately 12:30 p.m. today, two 17 year-old males were also arrested without incident in the Cole Harbour area in connection with the shootings. They are also in police custody.
The individuals involved are known to each other and this was not a random act.
