Man with gunshot wound shows up at Abbotsford hospital

A 34-year-old man showed up at Abbotsford Regional Hospital on Tuesday night with a gunshot wound to his leg, but police are having difficulty determining exactly what happened because he is revealing few details.

Const. Ian MacDonald said police were notified at about 11:40 p.m. that the victim had turned up at hospital after being brought there by a friend.

MacDonald said the man and the friend have had “extensive negative contacts” with police but primarily in areas outside of Abbotsford.

He is not believed to be a current Abbotsford resident nor does the incident appear to have any links to the ongoing Townline Hill gang conflict in west Abbotsford, MacDonald said.

He said the victim has not co-operated with police, including information about where the incident occurred and who was involved.

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