A second suspect wanted on a Canada-wide warrant after a break-in and shooting at an apartment in Spryfield has been arrested, say Halifax Regional Police.

Christian Enang Clyke, 20, was arrested Thursday night at approximately 11:30 p.m. at a residence on Thornhill Drive in Halifax.

The Halifax man is scheduled to appear in Halifax provincial court on Friday, facing charges of attempted murder, assault with a weapon, possession of a prohibited weapon, robbery, breaking and entering and a slew of other charges.

A co-accused, Anthony Michael Leadley, was arrested Wednesday evening at approximately 6 p.m. at a residence on Windmill Road in Dartmouth.

The 21-year-old is charged with the same 20 offences, including two counts of attempted murder and three counts of robbery, breaking and entering and more than a dozen other charges.

The search for the men began after officers were called to Forbes Street in Spryfield at 10:12 p.m. on Tuesday night.

Halifax Regional Police said a man reported two men — one with a handgun — broke into his apartment.

The suspects chased the victim out of the apartment and at least two shots were fired before the suspects fled.

No one was injured.

Just before 1 a.m. on Wednesday, Halifax Regional Police officers spotted a vehicle associated with the suspects in the break-in.

As they followed the car, it went behind an apartment building on Windmill Road in Dartmouth and the driver fled on foot. He was not found.

Halifax Regional Police said the shooting was not random.
