Two men wanted by police: Andrew Hudder, left, and Brandon Mombourquette.
The men – Andrew Jason Hudder, 26, and Brandon Joseph Mombourquette, 28 – are both wanted by police on warrants. Police believe both men are travelling together somewhere in Atlantic Canada.
“They are considered armed and dangerous and members of the public should not approach them or try to take matters into their own hands,” a statement reads.
In regards to Hudder, he is wanted in relation to a shooting in Halifax on Nov. 3, 2012 after a taxi travelling down Robie and McCulley streets was fired at. Police say the early-morning shooting was directed at the male passenger in the back seat.
Hudder is charged with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a weapon and nine weapons offences. He is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant.
As for Mombourquette, he was arrested in 2009 after a loaded handgun was allegedly found in a vehicle. He was charged with several weapons offences, but on March 1, police say he didn’t show up to court and an Atlantic region-wide warrant was issued.
Anyone with information on either man’s whereabouts is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
