Police say “fortunately” there don’t appear to be any injuries after bullets flew during daytime hours in a Dartmouth neighbourhood over the weekend.
Halifax Regional Police were called to a report of shots being fired at 7 Kennedy Dr. just before 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Police say two males using handguns are believed to have fired at one another. Two shots were fired in total, according to police, and the suspects couldn’t be located when officers arrived on scene at the apartment complex.
“There’s very little information that came out of the preliminary investigation,” police spokesperson Sgt. Don Moser said a day after the shooting.
Kennedy Drive is off of Caledonia Drive and there were kids playing around the area when the shots were fired. The shooting was also about half a kilometre away from Beazley Field, which was playing host to the Canadian senior men’s baseball championships.
“Any time there’s any weapon type of incidents, regardless of time of day, it’s disturbing to police,” Moser said. “Fortunately, to our knowledge, there were no injuries.”
The shooting was the second in Dartmouth in less than a week. A van with a man sleeping inside was shot at on Lakefront Drive last Tuesday. There were no injuries in that incident either.
