Halifax Regional Police are asking for the public’s help in solving the 2010 shooting death of a 21-year-old man.
Police responded to a report of a shooting inside a home on Jarvis Lane in Halifax after 8 p.m. on Oct. 16, 2010.
When officers arrived, they found the body of Donald Jermaine Stevenson. Police say he had been shot and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators believe a man wearing a skull mask and dark clothing entered the home and shot Stevenson while two family members were present.
The suspect fled the scene on foot, heading northbound on Duffus Street toward Dartmouth Avenue, where he got into the passenger seat of a silver SUV.
The vehicle left northbound on Dartmouth Avenue, turning onto Rector Street in an unknown direction.
Police don’t believe the shooting was a random act and they are still investigating Stevenson’s murder, six years later. They are asking anyone with information to come forward.
