Nova Scotia man convicted of first-degree murder in shooting death of Joseph Cameron

A young Nova Scotia man has been convicted of first-degree murder in the March 2016 shooting death of 20-year-old Joseph Cameron.

The 18-year-old accused stood trial in Halifax youth court over 20 days this summer.

Judge Anne Derrick said the Crown had proven each of the essential elements of first-degree murder beyond a reasonable doubt.

The accused's identity is protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act because he was 17 at the time of the offence.
