More charges expected for man accused in Fredericton shooting

A 56-year-old man arrested after a shooting last week in Fredericton has made his first court appearance.

Police say Eldon Wayne McCoy of Fredericton is charged with a single count of pointing a firearm.

Police say more charges are when McCoy returns to court today.

Officers were called to a home on the city's north side early Friday and found a 47-year-old man with a gunshot wound.

He was taken to hospital with what police describe as non-life threatening injuries.

Police said a suspect, who is known to the victim, was arrested on an adjacent property shortly after the shooting.
