New Brunswick RCMP say the victim of an early morning shooting in Moncton has been identified as 18-year-old Joedin Leger.

Police say shots were fired outside of a home on Logan Lane in the city around 6:10 a.m. Monday. A young man suffered gun shots wounds and later died at the hospital.

According to a release, police say a car pulled up in front of the house and four people stepped out.

“Several shots were fired, and the suspects got back into the vehicle which fled the scene,” the release said.

RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Hans Ouellette said in the release on Tuesday police believe this is an isolated incident and “do not believe the safety of the general public is at risk.”
