File # 2017-42190

A man faces charges after he was arrested by the RCMP following a shooting incident last week.

The arrest stemmed from a report made to the RCMP on October 2, 2017 at around 11:45 pm of a gun being fired at a vehicle parked in the 9400-block of Corbould Street. General Duty and General Investigation Support Team (GIST) officers immediately arrived at the address and cordoned off the area. Investigators quickly linked a white sedan and suspect to the incident.

Shortly after midnight the sedan was stopped by RCMP Fraser Valley Traffic Services on the Trans-Canada Highway in Abbotsford where the suspect was taken into custody by the RCMP supported by Abbotsford Police Department. A loaded ‘sawed off’ shotgun and a rifle were seized by officers during the arrest.

Brodie Gregory Douglas, 24, of Abbotsford faces charges of careless use or storage of a fire arm, possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to the public peace, assault, and mischief. Mr. Douglas remains in custody pending a court appearance in October.

Fortunately no one was injured in the shooting which we believe was targeted, says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD. The investigation remains open as GIST and officers from the Lower Mainland District Integrated Forensic Identification Section continue their thorough examination of the evidence gathered by police.

RCMP ask anyone with information regarding this investigation to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
