St. George RCMP responded to a report that shots had been fired at a residence in the Musquash, New Brunswick area Thursday evening.


The RCMP members quickly learned that a 58-year-old man had barricaded himself inside his home.

The RCMP’s Emergency Response Team was then called to the scene, and the man was arrested without incident shortly before 1:00 a.m. Friday.  The man, who was not identified, remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in Saint John Provincial Court on Friday afternoon.

The RCMP continues to investigate.
