Man accused of killing Const. John Davidson to make court appearance

Oscar Arfmann scheduled for Abbotsford provincial court on Tuesday morning

The man charged with fatally shooting Abbotsford Police Const. John Davidson on Nov. 6 is scheduled to make a brief court appearance this morning.

Oscar Arfmann, 65, is slated to appear in Abbotsford provincial court to confirm whether he has a lawyer in place.

Arfmann, an Alberta resident, was charged Nov. 7 with first-degree murder after Davidson was killed in the line of duty.

The 53-year-old officer was the first on scene after police received reports of shots being fired at civilians at a strip mall on Mt. Lehman Road.

Davidson was struck by gunfire and was pronounced dead in hospital shortly after.

Arfmann was arrested not far from the scene following a brief police chase that ended in a crash and with more shots being fired. He was injured in the incident and was taken to hospital.

Watch for more following Arfmann’s court appearance.
