At least one suspect brandished a firearm and demanded money and drugs. The man was able to get away through the back door while the woman hid in another room.The suspects then ransacked the home and fled the house with a duffle bag carrying unknown items. The quartet also left with keys to a black BMW parked outside the home and began driving away in the vehicle as the man tried to stop them.One of the suspects then fired a single shot through the driver’s side window during the confrontation but no one was injured.A white sedan was spotted trailing the BMW; the stolen BMW was later found abandoned a short distance away.Investigators now believe the incident is targeted and are hoping witnesses will come forward to speak with police. Investigators are also seeking anyone with home surveillance or dashboard camera footage that may have captured the event or the suspects on Saturday evening.Abbotsford police can be reached at 604-859-5225 or by text message at 222973.
