Three men have appeared in court accused of possessing a handgun and conspiring to cause grievous bodily harm in Denbighshire.
They appeared before Llandudno Magistrates on Friday and were remanded in custody to appear at Mold Crown Court on 26 May.
It follows what North Wales Police called "an incident" in Wellington Road, Rhyl, on Monday.
A fourth man, who is in hospital, faces the same charges.
Two of the men also face drugs charges, including conspiring to supply cannabis.
