A Dartmouth man is facing several charges after a weekend dispute involving a shotgun.

Halifax Regional Police say officers responded to the 0-100 block of Lahey Road at 3:48 p.m. Saturday, and learned that two men had gotten into an argument.

One of the men left the area, but returned in a car and pulled a shotgun out of the trunk.

Another man who saw what was happening intervened, and took the gun after a short struggle.

Officers soon arrested a 46-year-old man, who will appear in provincial court to face weapons-related charges.
