Halifax police are investigating a shooting after a man in his 20s turned up at hospital on Wednesday night with a gunshot wound.
Police say they received complaints of shots being fired in the area of Uniacke and Brunswick streets just before 11 p.m. Shortly later, they received a call from staff at the QEII hospital about a man being brought to the emergency room after he was shot.
The victim’s injuries aren’t believed to be life threatening and there have been no arrests.
Police are now looking for the public’s assistance in relation to the shooting and are releasing more information about what took place last night.
At 10:50 p.m., police responded to Uniacke Street for a report of multiple shots fired. On arrival, officers were confronted by an hostile crowd of upwards of 50 people who had gathered in the area. Due to the level of aggression directed towards officers, multiple units were dispatched to the area to gain control of the situation. As a result, three women were arrested for breach of the peace and a Conducted Energy Weapon (CEW) was deployed to gain control of one of the women. All three were later released from police custody.
A short time after the initial call, a 23-year-old man went to hospital with gunshot wounds. He later underwent surgery for non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators with the HRP/RCMP Integrated Major Crime Unit are urging anyone who was in the area and may have information about the incident or the suspect(s) to contact them at 490-5333 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477), submitting a secure web tip
