Police in Halifax say they have released two people arrested in connection with the sudden death of a young man in Clayton Park.
Halifax Regional Police say they were called to 36 Montgomery Court Sunday around 1:40 a.m.
A 20-year-old man needed immediate medical help and was rushed to hospital by paramedics, where he later died.
“The name of the victim is being withheld pending next of kin notification,” a police statement read Sunday morning.
On Sunday afternoon, Halifax Regional Police spokeswoman Cindy Bayers said they were called to the scene for what she described as a ‘suspicious circumstance.'
Police also arrested two people known to the 20-year-old at 6:20 a.m. Sunday. Held were a 27-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman, both of Halifax.
Police say at 8 p.m., the two were released without charges.
An autopsy was also conducted Sunday by the Medical Examiner’s Office, but police say "more in-depth testing" is needed to determine the cause of death.
Police will remain on scene until the cause of death has been determined.
