Independent investigators are being deployed to Abbotsford for a “police-related incident,” after a police officer was reportedly shot on Monday.

The Independent Investigations Office (IIOBC) investigates “officer-involved incidents that result in death or serious harm.”

Police have reportedly blocked traffic in and out of the area as the situation unfolds.

A press conference on the incident is scheduled for 3 pm today.
