ABBOTSFORD, B.C. – The Vancouver Sun is reporting that a man shot to dead at a home in Abbotsford on Friday was set to stand trial in Dawson Creek in just a few weeks.
Police in Abbotsford found the body of Jaskarn Lally on Friday afternoon at around 4:30 p.m. and early signs of the investigation show that he was shot multiple times at a house in the 3500-block of Chase Street in Abbotsford.
Lallay was apparently scheduled to appear in court in Dawson Creek on April 24 for six weapon related offences from a shooting at a gravel pit back in 2015.
The article states that charges were filed after an investigation into the abduction of a 26-year-old man in Dawson Creek in February, 2015.
The Vancouver Sun article states that according to a forfeiture claim, the abducted victim was taken to a gravel pit after being knocked out. He was then tied to a chair and shot in the legs. The victim managed to drag himself to a road nearby and ended up in the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds and broken bones.
Lally and others were arrested at a traffic stop after the incident.
Lally was then arrested again after he was released on bail. When he was rearrested, he had been trying to break into a ‘stash’ house according to the article.
Police say the shooting appears to be targeted and that Lally was known to police. They say he was also involved in gang activity.
