A 30-year-old London, Ont., man is facing charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault in connection with a shooting last month at a King Edward Avenue residence that left two people in hospital.

A 40-year-old Belmont, Ont., man is also in custody and has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault, police said Monday.

The pair were arrested on Friday, nearly a month after officers began their investigation into the daytime shooting, which police have said was targeted.
