A 52-year old man from Dieppe has been arrested in connection with an attempted murder in Shediac. RCMP responded to a 9-1-1 call yesterday evening around five o'clock about a man pointing a gun at a woman. A neighbour noticed what was happening and managed to intervene convincing the man to put the weapon down. No one was injured and the man was arrested by police in the area shortly after.
He is now facing numerous charges including attempted murder, kidnapping, pointing a firearm, break and enter and uttering threats. He is due in court later today.
