Man injured by police in early morning shooting

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 12 Jan, 2021
  • Man injured by police in early morning shooting

The B.C. police watchdog is investigating an RCMP-involved shooting that sent one man to the hospital with serious injuries in the Fraser Valley.

Chilliwack Mounties say they responded to a call where a man allegedly threatened and injured a woman before she was able to escape a home.

They say the man also left the house but continued to send the woman "concerning messages and threats."

Police say they were able to track the man to a nearby school where they boxed in the man's vehicle as he sat in a parking lot on Tuesday morning.

The man reportedly had a weapon and police say he was shot during the course of the interaction.

The man was taken to hospital and the Independent Investigations Office is looking into the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
