As part of the investigation, police searched a home in uptown Saint John Thursday and seized evidence.

Two male suspects face weapons charges and remain in custody with a court appearance scheduled for the week of June 29.

Officers with the Emergency Tactical Team, Major Crime, Street Crime and Patrol Services were involved in the investigation.
