Kimberley RCMP say there is no link between two men charged in a Thursday drive-by shooting and the home they shot at.

Overnight between Thursday, April 4 and Friday, April 5, police were called to a home on Archibald Street in Kimberley. First at 11 p.m., the inhabitants of the home reported shots being fired at the residence and gave police a vague vehicle description.

Police began to search for the vehicle, but were unable to locate it before the alleged shooter returned to the scene of the incident at 1 a.m.

According to an RCMP statement, police located the suspect vehicle and arrested two men.

On Friday, charges were laid against two 27-year-old men who RCMP said have extensive criminal records.

One man has been charged with discharging a firearm with intent, possession of a weapon while being prohibited, possession of a prohibited weapon and ammunition, and breach of probation.

The second man was charged with breach of probation.

The pair will next appear in Cranbrook court on Monday, April 9.
