VIDEO: Drive-by shooting followed by car set on fire

No one hurt in Abbotsford incident near Langley border

Abbotsford Police are investigating a drive-by shooting that occurred Monday night in the area of Bradner and Downes roads in west Abbotsford.

Nobody was injured in the incident, which took place just after 7:30 p.m.

Const. Ian MacDonald said a man was driving a black Audi south on Bradner Road near Downes when he was passed by a vehicle from which an occupant began shooting.

The victim, in his 40s, drove to his Abbotsford home and then called police. MacDonald said the man is not known to police.

He said police confirmed that the man’s car had been struck, and they also found bullet casings at the scene of the shooting.

Soon after, the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) received reports of a car on fire on Nathan Avenue in northwest Abbotsford near the Langley border.

MacDonald said the burned BMW is believed to be the suspect car involved in the shooting. The vehicle matched the description given of the suspect vehicle and was confirmed stolen from Surrey, he said.

MacDonald said police do not believe that the incident is drug- or gang-related, but they still haven’t confirmed whether the shooting was targeted or random.

Anyone with information is asked to call the APD at 604-859-5225 or text abbypd (222973).
