At the time, police said one person was hurt but left before officers arrived on scene. That individual has since been identified and police said their injuries were non-life-threatening.

On Wednesday, police announced they had arrested two Kitchener men for the shooting. One is 27-years-old and the other is 24-years-old.

"They were arrested on two separate dates," said Const. Brad Hickey. "Both of the individuals are facing numerous drug and firearms-related charges."
