The Government of the Province of Nova Scotia is offering rewards of up to one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($150,000) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Kevin James BOWSER.
On July 10, 2004, at approximately 10:00 pm, police responded to a report of a shooting in the area of 5450 Uniacke Street, Halifax. Upon police arrival, the victim, Kevin James BOWSER, was found laying in front of 5446 Uniacke Street, having suffered from gun shot wounds. Mr. BOWSER was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.
The police investigation revealed that Mr. BOWSER had been in the area of Uniacke Square talking to other people prior to being shot. It is believed that Mr. BOWSER and another person travelled to a McDonalds Restaurant in a vehicle, then returned to 5450 Uniacke Street where he entered this residence. Someone knocked on the door at 5450 Uniacke Street and requested that the victim go outside. It is believed that Mr. BOWSER exited the residence, where he was shot moments later. A car was seen speeding away from the scene after the shooting.
Any person with information regarding the person(s) responsible for the murder of Kevin James BOWSER should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090.
