Teen charged in Creighton Street shooting
Police have laid charges in a May shooting on Halifax's Creighton Street.
A 16-year-old male was charged Tuesday night with attempted murder, breach of probation, and a number of weapons-related offences.
On May 26, at about 11 p.m., three men were walking along the 2400 block of Creighton Street, when they heard gun shots.
One of them, a 19-year-old, was shot. The three ran to the area of Charles and Gottingen Street, where the shooting victim was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Two people had fled the area immediately after the incident.
Police determined that the shooting was random. The investigation is ongoing, and police have not ruled out further charges.
