TATAMAGOUCHE - A man wanted in a shooting in Moncton was arrested without incident Monday afternoon at a home near Tatamagouche's downtown.
Colchester County RCMP received a tip at noon that the 23-year-old man might be in the North Shore community. Police surrounded a Queen Street trailer and arrested the man at 2:15 p.m.
"There was no phones in the house so we had to get close enough to yell at him and tell him who we were," Sgt. Al Affleck explained. "He came out the window. No incident."
A 35-year-old Amherst man was injured early Saturday morning after a bullet grazed the man's head during a shooting on Wesley Street in downtown Moncton. He was transported to hospital, treated and released.
Shawn Joseph Reid, 23, of the Halifax area, was charged Monday in Moncton Provincial Court with attempted murder in connection with the incident, and a Canada wide warrant was issued for his arrest.
"We're holding the house for Moncton to come down and we're going to do a search," Affleck said.
Reid was being held in custody until Codiac Regional RCMP arrived to take him back to New Brunswick to answer to the charges.
Nine officers from Colchester County, traffic services and Pugwash were involved in the Tatamagouche arrest. There are a number of trailers close together in the area but no one was evacuated.
