May 2, 2020 homicide victim identified

Police are now able to confirm the victim of Saturday’s homicide is 29-year old Justin Leigh Finnemore, of Fredericton, New Brunswick.

Shortly after 4:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 2, 2020, police were called to the Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital where Mr. Finnemore had succumbed to his injuries after being shot.

The vehicle that was involved in dropping the victim off at the hospital was located and stopped by police a short time later. Several people were taken into custody at that time, and they have all since been released unconditionally.
