Gun Shots Fired On Gottingen Street In Halifax

Halifax Regional Police say gunshots fired in Halifax’s north end late Wednesday night were intended for a target but it appears the subject was not struck by any bullets.

Police say beat officers heard the gunfire in the 2300-block of Gottingen Street around 11 p.m. and were quickly on the scene where a suspect vehicle was seen speeding off southbound, while an unidentified male was seen running away in the opposite direction.

They believe there were no injuries as a result of the gunfire but police say a business storefront did sustain damage from the stray bullets.

Just before midnight, police say the suspect vehicle was spotted travelling along Trollope Street and police arrested two men.

They were taken to police headquarters and questioned but later released.
