ON March 12 at 12:36 a.m., Abbotsford Police plainclothes officers were conducting routine patrols in a closed business complex in the 31900-block of South Fraser Way when officers located a group of people congregating on the property.
Officers proceeded to investigate. As they approached the group in their unmarked police vehicle, a female emerged from the group and pointed a firearm toward their vehicle and fired, striking the windshield and causing minor damage.
Officers immediately exited their vehicle, identified themselves as police officers and conducted a high-risk arrest.
The female complied with the officer’s direction and dropped the firearm, later determined to be a pellet gun.
Tammy Gray, 49, of Abbotsford has been charged with assaulting a peace officer, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and mischief.
“AbbyPD [Abbotsford Police Department] is committed to ensuring public safety on the streets of Abbotsford. Our officers will continue to conduct proactive patrols to identify and hold individuals carrying weapons accountable,” said Sgt. Paul Walker on Tuesday.
