UPDATE: Suspect in custody after targeted shooting downtown Chilliwack

No one injured in incident overnight Monday that saw a vehicle window shot out at home on Corbould

Police believe a shooting in a residential area near Chilliwack’s downtown core overnight Monday was targeted.

That’s according to RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail who said they do have a suspect in custody, but he could not release a name while Mounties continue to investigate.

People reported on social media there was a heavy police presence in the early hours of Oct. 3 at the house at the corner of Victoria Avenue and Corbould Street, and RCMP Forensics officers were still at the scene mid-morning Tuesday.

The investigators were examining the trajectory of a bullet through the front passenger window of a blue Volkswagen station wagon in the driveway of the home.

After penetrating the passenger’s side, the bullet appeared to have travelled through the inside of the car destroying the driver’s side window.
