Emergency services were called to Birch Green Road at 6.11pm on November 9 last year following reports of a firearms discharge. On arrival they found a male, in his 30s, had been shot.
The victim was taken to hospital where he was treated for a gunshot wound to his leg. He was later discharged.
Kelly, of Inglewhite, Skelmersdale, and Williams, 20, of Broad Lane, Kirby, will remain in custody until the trial in January.
