A pair of area men have been arrested and face firearms charges after two men were shot in Flin Flon last week.
On Jan. 18, police arrested both 24-year-old David Ross of Flin Flon and 24-year-old Nicholas Gunville of Denare Beach and charged them with multiple offences.
Ross faces charges of attempted murder with a firearm, discharge firearm with intent, four counts of failing to comply and possession of a firearm while prohibited. Gunville faces six charges, including attempted murder with a firearm, discharge firearm with intent and four counts of failing to comply.
Around 3 a.m. Jan. 17, RCMP were alerted to a shooting at a home on First Avenue. Two men, ages 24 and 52, were taken to hospital suffering from gunshot wounds. The two were treated for non-life threatening injuries. Neither were identified by police.
An investigation was conducted by both Flin Flon RCMP and the provincial Major Crime Unit. Police had blocked off the crime scene following the shooting.
RCMP are not looking for any further suspects, but the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
It is unknown when Gunville and Ross will make their first appearance in court.
