HALIFAX – Halifax police say they have made an arrest in connection with a shooting death that happened more than 10 years ago.

Kevin James Bowser, 28, was found in front of a Uniacke Street residence on July 10, 2004 suffering from gunshot wounds and died a short time later.

Shilo Marcino Beals of Cherrybrook, N.S. was arrested at a residence on Highway 89 in New Tecumseth, Ont. on Wednesday.

He is facing charges for first-degree murder and six weapons-related offences.

A Canada-wide arrest warrant was issued for Beals on July 14, 2014.

He is due to appear in Ontario court on Wednesday for a bail hearing.

Investigators from Halifax are planning to travel to Ontario to bring Beals back to Nova Scotia to face the charges.

Bowser’s case was on the province’s list of rewards for major unsolved crimes.
