Police have ruled out a red SUV seen in the area at the time a pizza delivery driver was shot on Saturday as having anything to do with his killing.

Halifax Regional Police issued a release Tuesday saying they were trying to locate a red full-size SUV similar to an Escalade.

By day’s end, the vehicle’s owner contacted police and investigators deemed there was no connection to the homicide.

Donald Chad Smith, a 27-year-old from Windsor Junction, was found outside of 15 Joseph Young St. in Highfield Park just before 9:30 p.m. Saturday suffering from a single gunshot wound.

There have been no arrests.
