Police were called to a residence on Sydney Road at approximately 8:15 PM, where a male victim in his late 20s was suffering from gunshot wounds. He was treated by EHS and pronounced deceased at the scene.

Police secured the area and called resources from Major Crime, Forensic Identification, K-9, Emergency Response and Patrols. Police were looking for a suspect who fled the scene in a small red vehicle with no hub caps on the passenger side. Further overnight investigation led police to identify a suspect and that he had traveled to the Halifax area. With the assistance of Halifax Regional Police, the man was arrested early this morning in Dartmouth, without incident. 

Police continue to investigate; charges are pending.
