Police said two groups shot at each other on April 20 in the afternoon near the corner of Saint-Dominique and Saint-Zotique Est streets and that information from witnesses and surveillance images led them to the suspects.
Three suspects were arrested on June 3. Two of them -- Steven Therien, 30, and Kristina Svestka, 28 -- appeared at the Montreal courthouse on several charges relating to possession of firearms.
