Police in Halifax are asking for the public’s help in locating a man wanted in connection with a shooting earlier this month.
Officers responded to a report of shots fired in the area of Robie and McCully streets around 2:15 a.m. on Nov. 3.
Investigators say a 48-year-old taxi driver was driving north on Robie Street with a male passenger when someone in another vehicle fired shots at the cab.
No one was injured in the shooting.
Today, police issued a Canada-wide arrest warrant for 26-year-old Andrew Jason Hudder in connection with the incident.
Hudder was paroled from prison late last year, but has since disappeared.
There are reports he is an associate of well-known crime figure Jimmy Melvin.
Police say Hudder has been charged with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a weapon, and nine weapons-related offences in connection with the shooting.
Kyle Douglas Shipley, 24, of Williamswood, Kirk Michael Wright, 24, of Halifax and Everett Douglas MacNeil, 24, are also facing a slew of charges, including attempted murder, in connection with the shooting.
Investigators believe Hudder is still in the Halifax area.
He is described as a white man with brown hair and brown eyes. He is six-foot-one and weighs 165 pounds.
Police say Hudder is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police.
On Nov. 3, Halifax police responded to reports of shots being fired in the Robie Street area.
