Fatal Moncton Shooting Involving Police Under Investigation

A man is dead following a confrontation with police early Saturday morning.

It began just before 6am, when Codiac Regional RCMP responded to a complaint of an armed person trying to break into a vehicle near the Moncton Coliseum. But by the time they arrived on the scene, the suspect was gone. 

An hour later, as they were trying to track down the man, shots were fired in the Whitney Avenue-Jordan Avenue area of the city. Later, a man in his thirties was pronounced dead. 

The incident is being investigated by the Fredericton Police.
