According to the Integrated Homicide Investigative Team the shooting appears to be targeted.

Early reports indicate multiple shots were heard in the area of Chilliwack Central Road and Banford Road at around 8 p.m. Two people, and male and a female, were apparently shot in a vehicle which then crashed into a farmer’s field.

The woman died at the scene, while theman was taken to hospital with life threatening injuries. His current condition is unknown.

IHIT is asking that anyone with information regarding this investigation to contact the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448 (IHIT), or if you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers.

The shooting comes just days after IHIT announced a murder charge had been laid

in an earlier Chilliwack killing. Daniel Joseph Fabas was charged with second degree murder for the April 18 slaying after 33-year-old Dave Williams outside his Princess Avenue home.NOTE: An earlier version of this story said the male had been killed and the female was in hospital.
