Second man charged, person of interest sought following altercation in Moncton
A second man is facing assault charges and a person of interest is wanted in connection with an altercation in Moncton last week.
New Brunswick RCMP say they were called to a residence on Whitney Avenue off Killam Drive at about 10:15 p.m. on Jan. 30.
When they arrived, officers found three men in the area of Whitney Avenue and Argyle Street who were injured, one by a bullet.
At the time, police said a fourth man was seen running away. But they now believe a fifth man was involved.
All three have since been released from hospital.
Shortly after the incident, Joshua Belliveau, 31, of Memramcook, N.B., was charged with a single count of assault causing bodily harm.
On Wednesday, police said 54-year-old Stanley Smith of Moncton has also been charged. He appeared in provincial court on Tuesday to face a charge of aggravated assault.
He remains in custody and is scheduled to return Wednesday for a bail hearing.
