A 21-year-old man has been charged in Abbotsford after he allegedly pointed his a gun at another driver and then crashed his vehicle.

Abbotsford Police Sgt. Judy Bird said the incident occurred at about 1:30 a.m. Friday (Oct. 23) when Gurkirat Toor was driving a rented Nissan Murano in the area of Townline Road and Southern Drive in west Abbotsford.

Toor allegedly pointed a gun at another car, and the victim drove away. Bird said Toor then lost control of his vehicle as he tried to make a high-speed right turn, and he crashed into a retaining wall and two parked cars near Upper Maclure Road and Townline Road.

Bird said Toor was arrested at the scene for breaching his bail conditions. She said his vehicle was searched, and a loaded handgun was located under the seat.

Toor has now been charged with four more offences – pointing a firearm, possessing a firearm with an altered serial number, occupying a vehicle knowing there was a firearm present, and possessing a prohibited firearm.

Bird said police are looking for anyone who might have CCTV footage or dash-cam video in the area of Upper Maclure Road and Southern Drive or Upper Maclure and Townline Road between 1:30 and 2:30 a.m. on Oct. 23. They are asked to call the major crime unit at 604-859-5225.

At the time of his arrest, Toor was on bail for two charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking related to a bust in

August 2019 that police said was related to the Lower Mainland gang conflict.

At that time, he was among three young men charged after police pulled them over in a vehicle and found $1,500 cash, individually packaged doses of fentanyl and crack cocaine, and cellphones. Police also seized the vehicle – a 2016 Jeep Wrangler –that they said was being used to deliver drugs.

The fentanyl seized was purple, which would have occurred from the producer using a colouring agent to differentiate their drugs from that of other suppliers.

Charged at the same time as Toor were Jotveer Dhaliwal, now 21, and Amritpal Sidhu, 20.

Police said that Abbotsford was experiencing a trend around young people being recruited into gangs, specifically as drivers.
