A 24 year old man and 32 year old woman are facing many charges, including attempted murder, after shots were fired during a police pursuit Wednesday night north of Regina.
RCMP say members from several detachments were involved in a search for a vehicle which Regina police alerted them to saying the people inside reportedly had a gun.
Police located the vehicle in question in the Punnichy area with officers then seeing a man and woman involved in some kind of altercation with an elderly man in what is thought to have been an attempt to steal his vehicle.
When officers confronted the pair, they fled in the van eastbound on Highway 15 with shots being fired at the officers in pursuit.
The van was finally stopped seven kilometers east of Punnichy with both occupants being arrested without incident.
RCMP say officers fired no shots and no one was hurt in the incident.
Keli Stonechild and Kristin Lerat have been remanded in custody and will appear in a Regina courtroom Monday morning.
