Two men have been formally charged in connection with a brazen drive-by shooting in Nanaimo yesterday that sparked a dramatic and lengthy police chase.
Nanaimo RCMP says the men arrested after a police takedown in Duncan are 18 year old Armaan Singh Chandi of Surrey and 19 year old Inderpal Singh Aujla of Mission.
After a judicial bail hearing was held today, the RCMP confirmed the two men were charged with multiple offences including attempted murder, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and failing to stop for police.
“Now its our job to determine why they’re in Nanaimo and the motive behind the shooting” said Cst Gary O’Brien of Nanaimo RCMP.
Both men have been remanded into custody with their next court appearance set for Friday March 4th in Nanaimo Provincial court.
