Police have laid charges after an alleged public place shooting at Cessnock last August.
The charges followed an investigation sparked when a 23-year-old man at a property on Cessnock Road at Neath on August 25 last year reported hearing a loud bang about 7.30pm.
He saw a nearby Holden Commodore had smashed windows and what were believed to be bullet holes.
Hunter Valley police established a crime scene and commenced inquiries. On Thursday they swooped, arresting a 21-year-old woman at an address in Macquarie Road at Cardiff.
The 21-year-old was taken to Toronto police station and charged with offences including fire a firearm likely to injure persons or property and possess shortened firearm without authority.
She was refused bail to face Toronto Local Court.
A 24-year-old man attended Cessnock police station about 6pm on Friday and was charged with offences including supplying a prohibited firearm and conceal a strictly indictable offence.
