A 34-year-old North Preston, N.S., man has been charged with two counts of attempted murder after a shooting in Dartmouth Friday morning left two people injured.

The shooting happened on Trinity Avenue shortly before 9:30 a.m. A 26-year-old woman was shot in the face and 27-year-old man was shot in the torso.

Police say both suffered injuries that are not life-threatening.

Police arrested two men less than three hours later when officers stopped a silver SUV near the Forest Hills Parkway.

One of the men who was arrested is Terry Arthur Downey. He’s now been charged with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of assault with a weapon.

He also faces a slew of weapons charges including discharge of a firearm with intent, and is accused of breaching a previous court order.

The second man arrested has been released without charges.

Downey is set to appear in Dartmouth provincial court on Monday.
