Police in Halifax are asking the public for help solving a murder three years ago Monday.
John Newcombe was shot in front of Winston’s bar on Lacewood Drive on June 1, 2012, and pronounced dead on the scene.
The police say Newcombe had just left the bar when he was shot in the parking lot, and the shooter fled to Willet Street where someone picked him up in a vehicle. They say it was not a random incident; Newcombe was the target of the shooting.
If anyone saw Newcombe get into a fight with a group of men outside the bar earlier in the evening of May 31 or was even at the bar that night, they’re asked to call police.
