A man arrested in a shooting late last year in west Saint John has now been charged with second-degree murder.
Justin Breau, 35, was arrested following a shooting on Nov. 17, 2019, at a home on Duke Street West.
A male victim in the incident was taken to hospital, but police say Mark Shatford died of his injuries last month.
