Man arrested in Ontario, charged with murder in death of Halifax teen

Canada Global (Web News) An Ontario police officer has detained a 19-year-old Halifax resident who is accused of second-degree murder in connection with the shooting death of a teen last year.

Early on April 16, 2022, Halifax Regional Police received a complaint about a disturbance in the 2400-block of Brunswick Street.

Police discovered the victim’s shot-victimized body.

Simon Joseph Morrison, 18, was later identified as the victim, and homicide was declared to be the cause of death.

This past Monday, over a year after the incident, Keishawn Elton Jerius Stephenson, 19, received a nationwide arrest warrant for Canada.

By Wednesday, Markham, Ontario-based detectives and the York Regional Police had captured Stephenson. Next Monday, he is due to appear in Halifax Provincial Court.

Police are not seeking for any further suspects at this time because investigators think that this occurrence was not accidental, HRP stated in a news release.

We continue to send our condolences to Simon’s friends and family during this difficult time.

Police ask that anyone with information regarding the case contact them at 902-490-5020.
