Woman injured in shooting in south end of Halifax
HALIFAX -- A shooting in Halifax’s south end has sent one woman to hospital and police are still searching for a suspect.
Officers were called to a residence on Tower Terrace around 7:30 p.m. Monday for a weapons complaint. When they arrived, officers found an injured woman at the scene.
Police say it appears she was struck by a bullet that was fired through a window from outside the residence. She suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
"I was hearing canines out in back of the building," said neighbourhood resident Bradley Bowers. "There was a lot of cop action and police action back there. There was a couple of ambulances, an ambulance took someone away at the very beginning. That was the very first thing we witnessed, was an ambulance taking someone away."
Another resident, Alex Lukac, was having dinner when the silence was shattered.
"I heard a loud bang and then five minutes later the cops were coming and there was probably about eight of them that had come right soon after, and they were all blocking the street," said Lukac.
Investigators remained on scene Monday evening and are appealing to the public for any information.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police or anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
