A second person has been arrested in a shooting that took place on Ross Street in May.

A 28-year-old man has been arrested and identified by Manitoba RCMP following a shooting that put two people in hospital and already has one man facing an attempted murder charge.

The 28-year-old has been identified by police as Riley Aaron Guiboche, originally from Winnipeg. Guiboche faces three counts of attempted murder and several firearms-related offences. RCMP say Guiboche has been remanded into custody and that he will appear in court at a later date - the date itself has not been announced.

Guiboche is the second person to have been arrested in the shooting. On May 7, days after the shooting took place, RCMP announced the arrest of 27-year-old David Anthony Benjamin Ross of Flin Flon, who faces one charge of attempted murder and several firearms-related charges. Ross was also remanded into custody.

None of the charges against Guiboche or Ross have been proven in court.

Shortly before 10 p.m. May 4, police were called to a home on Ross Street after neighbours heard shots fired, not far from Ruth Betts Community School. At the home, a 23-year-old woman was found inside injured with what RCMP described as "life-threatening injuries". The woman was transported to a hospital in Winnipeg following the shooting.

After the 23-year-old woman was found, a second update to RCMP revealed a second victim, a 28-year-old man. He was taken to hospital with what police described as "serious but non-life threatening injuries".

Neither of the victims were identified by RCMP - both victims were later released from hospital.

An investigation into the incident is still ongoing, according to Manitoba RCMP.
