The homicide of a young man earlier this year has been added to the provincial program that offers rewards for information on major unsolved crimes.

Just after 1:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 16, multiple people called 911 to report a shooting on Brunswick Street.

When officers arrived, they found Simon Morrison near the intersection of Uniacke Street.

The 18-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators believe there are people who have information that could possibly help police lay charges in the case.

"Anyone with information about this act of gun violence against Simon is urged to come forward," said Brad Johns, Attorney General and Minister of Justice in a news release. 

"I hope the addition of this case to the rewards program will assist investigators in identifying those responsible."

The province's Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program offers up to $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible. 

All calls to 1-888-710-9090 are recorded. Those who come forward need to provide their name and contact information, and may be called to testify in court.

Anonymous tips can be submitted through Crime Stoppers.
