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.
