Two men have been arrested after a woman was shot in the face and a man was shot in the torso in Dartmouth Friday morning. ​

Police said Friday evening that charges are anticipated in the case.

Theresa Rath, spokesperson for the Halifax Regional Police, said both victims were believed to be conscious and breathing, and should survive. 

At least two shots were fired in the parking lot of an apartment building on Trinity Avenue. Reports came in at 9:21 a.m.

Less than three hours later, police arrested two men during a traffic stop at the Ultramar gas station near the Forest Hills Parkway. Police pulled over a silver SUV. 

Police say the shooter and the victims knew each other. 

A woman who witnessed the aftermath of the shooting told CBC News she saw a man run from the scene and call out that he had been shot. Police say he flagged down a stranger driving a vehicle, got in, and called 911.

Police and paramedics met the vehicle at the bus terminal on Nantucket Avenue. The man who was shot was then taken to hospital.

Police also questioned four people after tracking two cars that left the scene. Police said they are not suspects and will not face any charges.
