A Mission man has been sentenced to 26 months in jail for firing a gun at a police vehicle in November 2014.

Dustin James McDonald, 39, previously pleaded guilty to unlawfully discharging a firearm. Three other charges – careless use of a firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and another count of unlawfully discharging a firearm – were stayed.

The incident took place in the 32900 block of Best Avenue on the evening of Nov. 27, when police responded to a call in the area.

At the time, Mission Mounties said shots were fired at RCMP members, who “quickly took cover.”

One shot struck a vehicle, but nobody was injured.

Members of the Lower Mainland Integrated Emergency Response Team, along with Mission RCMP officers, were deployed to the area. McDonald surrendered to police and was charged a few days later.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team was called in to gather evidence toward possible attempted-murder charges, but those charges were never laid.
