Two men arrested in connection with 2010 Halifax shooting
Ryan Matthew White was found suffering from a gunshot wound on July 22, 2010 in Halifax.
Police in Halifax say they have arrested two men in connection with a two-year-old homicide investigation.
The 23-year-old and 25-year-old, both from the Halifax area, were arrested in Hamilton, Ontario and called in for questioning in the death of 21-year-old Ryan Matthew White.
The Halifax Regional Police say the Hamilton Police Service assisted in their investigation.
Police responded to the 100 block of Jarvis Lane in Halifax on July 22, 2010.
When they arrived on the scene, they found White lying on the ground, suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest.
He was taken to hospital where he died from his injuries.
Police say new information in the case led investigators to search Fort Needham Park in Halifax on June 29 for evidence related to the case.
Then on July 6, White’s case was added to the Nova Scotia Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program.
Under the program, anyone who comes forward is expected to provide their name and contact information. They may also be called to testify in court.
The Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program was launched in October 2006 as another tool for law enforcement to use in solving crime.
Police say the two men who were arrested are being questioned. There is no word yet on charges.
Investigators also say they believe there are people who still know information about White’s death who have yet to come forward and they are urging anyone with information to contact them.
