Saint John police say a man wanted over an Ontario shooting may be in the New Brunswick city.
Police said Sunday that they have credible information that Sirvon Edwards, 31, of Markham, Ont., is in the Saint John area.

A 22-year-old man was found shot. He survived.
"[Edwards] has a history of violence and is considered armed and dangerous," Whitney said. "Anyone who encounters him is advised not to approach him, but to call 911 immediately."
Edwards has several tattoos, including:

- A cross with "Remember me" on the underside of his right forearm
Police urged Edwards to contact a lawyer and turn himself in.
