HALIFAX -- Police in Halifax have charged a man in relation to a shooting at Alderney Landing in Dartmouth on Wednesday evening.
Officers say they have charged 23-year-old Justin Ronald Adams-Clarke with second-degree murder in the death of Tyler Michael Boyd Algee, 22.
An autopsy was conducted by medical examiners Thursday and the cause of death has been ruled a homicide.
At 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, the police say they responded to a report of gunshots and an injured man in the area of the Dartmouth waterfront near Alderney Drive.
Officers say they located a man who was suffering from a gunshot wound.
He was taken to hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries, according to police.
