Halifax area man found guilty in shooting

Published on February 21, 2014

The Canadian Press - A Halifax-area man will be sentenced in April for a shooting that wounded another man last year.

Provincial court Judge Anne Derrick found Shondell James Ogden guilty of several charges in a decision released Thursday, including discharging a firearm with intent to wound, carrying a concealed weapon, illegal possession of a weapon and possession of a restricted weapon.

Police began investigating after the victim, Jason Byers, showed up at Dartmouth General Hospital last April 5 with a gunshot wound to his leg.

Byers initially told police he was wounded while trying to break up a fight.

But Byers later told investigators the shooting occurred at a Dartmouth home during a confrontation with Ogden about money.

Ogden will return to court April 25 for sentencing.
