Investigation Into Rothesay Shooting Underway

The RCMP are now in the process of gathering and analyzing evidence in a fatal shooting involving a Rothesay Regional Police officer. 

That's according to Constable Damien Thériault who tells CHSJ News they are now interviewing witnesses to establish what actually happened during the incident on Friday evening around 7:00 when a 26-year-old man, reportedly armed with a knife, died after being shot outside a home on Shipyard Road as officers were responding to a violent domestic dispute.

William David McCaffrey was a nursing student at U-N-B Saint John.

Thériault says it's impossible to say when their investigation into the incident might be completed.
