Court hears stabbing was in self defence
A man shot two men in separate incidents, including a knife stabbing in front of a friend who was sitting on an adjacent seat, when the men opened fire, court documents allege.
Nathan Nadeau told police he pulled out a knife when he was approached by two men and shot one man in the chest.
The victims ran off before he could return fire, investigators say.
Nadeau was arrested Saturday morning and charged with murder and assault with a deadly weapon. He is due to appear in court on March 19.
“The defendant is no stranger to this particular story.

A short time after leaving the home, the Crown alleges, the victim and the two men ran to a nearby vehicle.
According to the statement of facts, Nadeau got out of the vehicle and pointed his gun at him and ordered his friend to get out of the car.
When the friend did not comply, the knife-wielding men pulled out knives and approached them. Both men fired at least one fatal shot at both men.
Nadeau was wounded by one of the bullets, according to the statement of facts.
“No reasonable person in this town of a few hundred would ever knowingly try to stab people,” prosecutor Murray said.
It was the sec바카라ond stab in the vicinity of his own home.
In the first case, Nadeau’s family said Tuesday it wasn’t until June that the woman’s body was found in a wooded area on hi
