A two-year old homicide case in Halifax has been added to a program in Nova Scotia that pays rewards for tips that lead to arrests and convictions in unsolved crimes.

The Justice Department says Nathan Cross was found unconscious by RCMP officers on April 24, 2011, when they arrived in the Halifax suburb of North Preston after gunshots were heard.

The youn man later died in hospital from a gunshot wound.

The department says the RCMP's investigation found that Cross was wounded while standing with a group of people when a suspect fired several shots at them.

The reward program pays up to $150,000 for tips that lead to arrests and convictions.

Sixty-nine unsolved crimes are in the program, which started about six and a half years ago.
