Abbotsford:On Monday, March 2, 2015 at 9:30 pm, the Abbotsford Police Department responded to reports of shots fired in the 31400 block of Southern Drive. APD officers arrived on scene and located several bullets and casings in the area. Fortunately, there was no indication of any person being injured. Neighbours reported hearing vehicles flee from the residential street quickly after the sound of gunfire.
One of the homes struck by bullets is associated to a known South Asian gang member. Occupants of that residence have not cooperated with the APD investigation and some of the information provided has actually been misleading. Although the motive for the shooting is still unknown, this does appear to be a targeted incident.
The investigation cannot exclude the possibility that this shooting incident is related to other recent events. The Abbotsford Police Department is extremely concerned about potential escalating tensions and the threats to public safety that this incident could represent.
Anyone with information about the shooting should call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225, text us at 222973 (abbypd), or call Crime Stoppers at
