A stolen BMW was found burning in Abbotsford on Monday, after a man called 911 to report his Black Audi had been shot at by a similar car.

According to a release from Abbotsford Police Department, the man is in his 40s and not previously known by police.

He had been driving southbound on Bradner Road when he heard gunshots from a vehicle beside him. He was not injured, but his black Audi was struck by bullets.
