A man and a woman have fronted court over their alleged involvement in a shooting in Albury.

Shannon Bush, 35, and Charlene Cranshaw, 25, faced Port Macquarie Local Court on Saturday (4 November) charged with multiple offences between them.

Bush was charged with 10 offences, including allegedly shooting with intent to murder, and possessing and using an unauthorised, unregistered and loaded firearm in a public place.

Cranshaw was charged with two counts of accessory to robbery while armed with a dangerous weapon.

Bush did not apply for bail, which was formally denied by the court, while Cranshaw was granted conditional bail.

Police said emergency services were called to Maryville Way, Thurgoona, following reports of a shooting about 3:20 pm on Thursday (2 November).
