Two people from the Toronto area have been charged in connection with an alleged ‘targeted’ shooting in Burlington, Ont., last month that sent a 23-year-old man to hospital.
Halton Regional Police say tactical teams and the canine unit executed a search at a Toronto home on Saturday, arresting a man and woman in addition to seizing a firearm and cocaine.
It’s believed the two were a part of a trio involved in the shooting during a robbery near Woodview Road, close to New Street and Walkers Line, just after 9 a.m. on June 17.
When police arrived on scene after the shooting, they found the victim suffering from a serious gunshot wound.
A 21-year-old man from Toronto and an 18-year-old woman from Mississauga are facing multiple charges including robbery.
The male suspect faces a total of 10 charges tied to possession of an unauthorized firearm, careless use of a firearm, drug possession and assault.
A third male connected to the shooting is still at large, police say.
