RCMP have confirmed an altercation took place outside of the Cactus Club and Const. Jesse O’Donaghey says a 25-year-old man has now been identified by police as the suspect involved in the death of Zachary Gaudette, 30.

Gaudette and the suspect were involved in an altercation around 9 p.m., Feb. 17, which resulted in the Ontario man being rushed to hospital in serious condition. On Feb. 19 Gaudette succumbed to his injuries.
