One dead, one injured in Mission shooting

Emergency services were called to Manson Street in Mission Wednesday night for a shooting

Police are still investigating an overnight shooting on Manson Street in Hatzic.



One man is dead, and another is injured after a shooting on Manson Street in Hatzic Wednesday around 10:30 p.m.

Mission RCMP say when they arrived at the home, located between Dann Avenue and Catchpole Avenue, they found one man, a 41-year-old Mission resident, inside the house shot in the head. The shooter, a 47-year-old Abbotsford man, was located outside, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot from a handgun.

The victim was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital via air ambulance and is in critical condition, however, police say he will live.

Mission RCMP Sgt. Miriam Dickson said, “I can confirm that the shooter … was familiar with the victim as he had been in a previous relationship with the victim’s current partner.”

She added Mounties had no previous knowledge of any relationship problems, the investigation is ongoing, and no exact motive is yet known.

Neighbours across the street said their 11-year-old son heard three gunshots from his second-floor bedroom window.

“We were all shocked,” said Jacquelyn Turner, describing the neighbourhood as quiet.

Her husband, Magnus Turner, said he believes there were two children living in the home. They were reportedly taken away by a family member in a car around 2 a.m.

The Turners were watching television when the shooting took place and neither heard gunshots, but went to the front door when Magnus noticed emergency crews arrive and a K9 unit began searching the area.

Jacquelyn said the neighbours had moved in about a month ago.
