A 37-year-old man from Kingsclear First Nation has been charged with second-degree murder after the shooting death of another man from the same community, say the RCMP.
The RCMP say they received a report of a shooting on a dirt road in a wooded area in Allandale — about 60 kilometres west of Fredericton — at about 8:45 p.m. on Monday.
James Robert Paul, 40, was found dead at the scene, and an autopsy later determined he died of a gunshot wound.
