An Abbotsford woman has been charged after allegedly firing a pellet gun at an unmarked police vehicle early Sunday morning (March 12).

Sgt. Paul Walker, media relations officer with the Abbotsford Police Department, said the incident took place just after 12:30 a.m. in the 31900 block of South Fraser Way, near Countess Street.

He said plainclothes officers were conducting routine patrols in a closed business complex when they noticed a group of people on the property.

Walker said, as officers in an unmarked police vehicle approached the group, a woman pointed and shot a firearm, hitting the car’s windshield and causing minor damage.
