Man and woman suffer gunshot wounds in Abbotsford

A couple turned up with injuries early Sunday morning at a gas station at Fraser Highway and Mt. Lehman Road.

The Abbotsford Police Department is investigating a shooting in which two people were injured.

A man and a woman suffering from apparent gunshot wounds showed up at an Abbotsford gas station early this morning.

The pair were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The incident took place at about 1:15 a.m. The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) received several calls about gunshots being heard in an area near Lefeuvre Road south of Fraser Highway.

As patrol officers and members of the emergency response team were en route, a vehicle with the two wounded people arrived at a gas station on Fraser Highway and Mt. Lehman Road.

Const. Ian MacDonald said the man and the woman, both in their 20s, are known to police “at mostly the petty-crime level.”

He said police are still trying to determine the exact circumstances of the incident, but they believe the couple were in a vehicle at the time of the shooting.

MacDonald said it appears that at least one of the pair lived near the area.

The APD major crime unit is continuing to investigate, including interviewing people and looking for possible security video in the area.

Anyone with information is asked to call the APD at 604-859-5225, text 222973 (abbypd) or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
