A 40-year-old man has been charged and two others have been arrested after a shot was fired in downtown Moncton this week.

Early Tuesday afternoon, Codiac RCMP responded to reports of a gun shot heard near Main and Weldon Streets where officers later discovered an office building on Weldon Street was hit by a bullet.

Police say no one was hurt.

Mounties secured the area and determined it was an isolated incident with no active threat to the public.

“At the time, the incident did not meet the criteria for an Alert Ready message,” says Codiac RCMP Sgt. Mathieu Roy.

“The RCMP in New Brunswick is always ready to issue an Alert Ready message should there be a need, or if there is an immediate risk to public safety.”

Late Tuesday afternoon, police arrested a 51-year-old man from Grand-Barachois and a 32-year-old woman from Moncton on Dieppe Boulevard as part of the investigation.

The man and woman were released on conditions and are scheduled to appear in Moncton Provincial Court in February.

Mid-afternoon on Wednesday, a 40-year-old man from Moncton was arrested at a home on Savoie Street in Moncton in connection with the investigation.

Jason Marc McGraw appeared in court on Thursday and was charged with careless use of a firearm, discharging a firearm while being reckless and being unlawfully at large.

He was remanded into custody and is scheduled to return to court on October 31 at 1:30 p.m. for a bail hearing.

“We are still actively investigating the incident and will keep updating the public when we are able to,” says Sgt. Roy.

“We want to thank the public for their cooperation, and we especially appreciated their assistance in sharing our information as quickly as possible.”

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation should contact Codiac RCMP at 506-857-2400.

Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), by downloading the secure P3 Mobile App, or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca.
