Cole Har­bour man fac­ing at­tempted mur­der charges

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON/PROVINCE -

A Cole Har­bour man is fac­ing charges of at­tempted mur­der in re­la­tion to a Clayton Park shoot­ing last year where a man was se­ri­ously in­jured.

At about 2 a.m. on March 6, Hal­i­fax Re­gional Po­lice re­ceived a call from a 60-yearold man who said he’d been shot inside his apart­ment at 680 Park­land Dr.

At the time, po­lice said when they ar­rived with paramedics they found the man suf­fer­ing from a “gun­shot wound to the up­per torso.”

The man was treated at the scene and taken to hospi­tal with in­juries that were be­lieved to be life-threat­en­ing.

The area was searched for sus­pects by po­lice, but no one was found. Po­lice said the mat­ter was not con­sid­ered ran­dom.

Ac­cord­ing to a re­lease, po­lice said the vic­tim died on July 8, 2016, but on Jan. 13 of this year the med­i­cal ex­am­iner de­ter­mined that the death was not a re­sult of the in­juries sus­tained from the shoot­ing, and is not con­sid­ered sus­pi­cious.

On Wed­nes­day, 19-year-old Ter­rance Treshon Brooks of Cole Har­bour turned him­self in to po­lice head­quar­ters on Got­tin­gen Street and was ar­rested with­out in­ci­dent.

Brooks is fac­ing charges of at­tempted mur­der, con­spir­acy to com­mit rob­bery, dis­charg­ing a weapon and other weapons-re­lated charges.
