North Preston, Nova Scotia — The Government of the Province of Nova Scotia is offering rewards of up to $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Jerell Aaron WRIGHT.

At about 10:45 p.m. on May 13, 2009, Mr. Wright (aka Rutu), born February 10, 1989, arrived at a residence on 16 Clarence St., North Preston. He was standing in a shared driveway when a series of gunshots were fired in his direction from a vehicle driving by. Mr. Wright was shot and later died in hospital. According to police, those responsible for the shooting immediately left the area in the vehicle.

The investigation, to date, has led police to believe the victim was not alone in the driveway when he was shot and that he was not the intended target. Police believe there are persons who have information that could result in an arrest and possible charges.

Any person with information regarding the person(s) responsible for the murder of Jerell Aaron WRIGHT should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090. Callers must provide their name and contact information, and may be called to testify in court. All calls will be recorded. The amount of the award will be based on the investigative value of the information provided.

The reward is payable in Canadian funds and will be apportioned as deemed just by the Minister of Justice for the Province of Nova Scotia. Employees of law enforcement and correctional agencies are not eligible to collect this reward.

People see some homeless people in Downtown Vancouver and think it's this super dangerous place, but then forget that the other 99.9% of the people are law abiding citizens. On a per capita basis many smaller places are much more dangerous.
