The RCMP has arrested a man and woman in connection with the death of a 20-year-old North Preston man.

Police responded to a report of shots fired on Downey Road around 2 a.m. on April 23. When officers arrived, they found the body of Daverico Downey on a pathway.

Officers ruled Downey’s death a homicide.

Shortly after 9 a.m. on Thursday, officers arrested a 33-year-old woman in a Dartmouth home without incident. About two hours later, officers arrested a 22-year-old man without incident, also in Dartmouth.

Police executed a search warrant at a home in Dartmouth on Green Village Lane and a vehicle was seized.

Both remain in police custody.
