On the night of the incident, police "Langley RCMP" and "Abbotsford" responded to nine calls for a stolen truck of the Mazda pickup which deliberately targeted and hit the walkers between 8 am. and 11 h.

Police said the driver had started in North Langley before moving to Abbotsford where the final pedestrian was hit at around 10:30 am.

Seven people were seriously injured, one of whom was hospitalized on Friday. Two dogs were also hit, one of them fatal.

Gordon's mother apologized for his behavior, and his family says it's not good.

The family, who says Gordon suffers from paranoia, delusion and severe anxiety, say he was admitted to the Abbessford hospital on December 19 but was released. Hours later the pedestrians were affected.

His family says he should never be released.

Fraser Health said he can not talk to specific cases about privacy.

However, he claims an attempt has been made to reach a family when Gordon was released while his mother says no one is called.

Police are still looking for video-video to help investigate and establish a tighter timeline in the exact place where the truck was on the night of December 19th.

Gordon will be returned to court on January 3rd.
