HTF: Rest Easy HERO. Our hearts and prayers are with you and your family Brother. Abbotsford, B.C. Const. John Davidson who began his career in the U.K. 24 years ago, and joined Abbotsford force in 2006. The Abbotsford Police Department described Davidson as an "amazing colleague and friend" and "a dedicated police officer." He began his law enforcement career in the United Kingdom and was hired by the Abbotsford force in 2006.
He leaves behind his wife and three adult children.
Davidson was killed while trying to arrest a suspect who had opened fire in the parking lot of a shopping centre in the 3200 block of Mount Lehman Road just before noon PT.
Police had been responding to a call about a stolen vehicle when a man began firing at the caller and other witnesses with a shotgun. When police arrived, they returned fire, and Davidson was shot.
The suspect, an Alberta man in his 60s, was injured in the subsequent takedown and escorted to hospital. He is currently in police custody but has not yet been formally charged.
Both the Independent Investigations Office of B.C., the province's civilian-led police investigation agency, and the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team are looking into the shooting.
In the meantime, members of the community are coming to terms with the loss of a man described as a "hero." 🇨🇦⚫️🔵⚫️🇨🇦
