Burning bus shelter death

The RCMP say they will provide a significant update tonight into the death of a homeless man who was found in a burning bus shelter in rural Nova Scotia last year

Earlier today, police made two arrests in their investigation into the death of Harley Lawrence.

Sgt. Alain LeBlanc said no charges had been laid but two people were arrested overnight and were being interviewed by police.

LeBlanc couldn't be reached for comment on the updated information police plan to release.

Lawrence died on Oct. 23 in Berwick in the province's Annapolis Valley.

Police have released few details about the death of the 62-year-old man, except that it is considered suspicious.

They have not released the findings of an autopsy.

Police say they arrested one person at about midnight in Berwick and a second person at about 1:20 a.m. in the Sackville area in Halifax.
