On April 5, at 7:40 p.m., a 42-year-old man attended the Dartmouth General Hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his lower body. The victim stated that he was in an altercation with another man who pulled out a handgun and shot him. A friend then drove him to the hospital where he was treated and later released. The investigation revealed that the shooting occurred in a residence in the 100 block of Tacoma Drive and that it was not a random act.
On April 7, at 2 a.m., investigators assigned to the HRP/RCMP General Investigation Section executed a search warrant at that location. Twenty-three-year-old Shondell Ogden was arrested at the scene without incident. Ogden was remanded to the Central Nova Scotia Correctional Facility and will appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court later today. He faces the following charges:
CC 239(1)(a) – Attempted murder
CC 244 – Discharging a firearm with intent
CC 267(a) – Assault with a weapon
CC 87(1) – Pointing a firearm
CC 88(1) – Possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace
CC 90(2)(a) – Carrying a concealed weapon
CC 91(1) – Unauthorized possession of a firearm
CC 95(2) (a) – Possession of a restricted firearm with ammunition
Investigators in the HRP/RCMP Integrated General Investigation Section are continuing the investigation.
