Halifax police say a 25-year-old man who was shot has died following a single vehicle crash on Saturday.

In a news release issued Sunday, police say the man was from Dartmouth, N.S., and an autopsy has confirmed his death as a homicide.

The victim's name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Police say they responded to a "weapons call" after a car crashed into a utility pole in the Dartmouth neighbourhood of Woodlawn shortly after 2 p.m. Saturday.

Officers arrived to find the driver unconscious with life-threatening injuries.

Police still haven't said whether the victim was shot before or after the crash.
