Chebucto Rd. shooting was drug-related, police say

Police say the Chebucto Road home where a man was shot Monday night was being used for drug trafficking.

A 25-year-old man is still in hospital after he was shot in a townhouse between Dublin and Windsor around 10:30 p.m.

Police say they got a search warrant after the shooting and seized hashish, marijuana, cash and drug paraphernalia. They say drug activity often involves violence that puts innocent citizens at risk.

Investigators say this shooting was connected to the drug dealing and was not random.

Police are looking for two male suspects who are believed to be involved in this incident.

“The first suspect is described as a white man, stocky, 5’4″, medium length brown hair, large straight nose and small eyes,” reads a police news release. “At the time of the incident, he was wearing a black pea coat, grey hoodie, blue jeans and purple t-shirt.”

The second suspect is described as a black male, 6’2″, slender build, shaved head or close cut. At the time of the incident, he was wearing dark clothing and a bandana covering his face.
