One man was stabbed and another was shot during an altercation in Abbotsford early Sunday morning, police have confirmed.

Const. Ian MacDonald said police received several calls just after 2 a.m. that day about a fight taking place in a yard and on the street in the 2300 block of Holly Street – west of Clearbrook Road and south of Peardonville Road.

Members of the patrol division and the emergency response team arrived on scene and located two injured men in their 20s.

MacDonald said one or more of the shots might have been fired as police were arriving on scene.

One of the injured men was in the front yard of the residence, while the other was located about a block away, MacDonald said.

He said at least a couple of the bullets hit a neighbour’s home and one hit a parked vehicle.

Both men were taken to hospital, where they were in stable condition.

MacDonald said both have had “numerous negative interactions” with police.

The Abbotsford Police Department’s forensic identification unit was on the scene, and the major crime unit is now leading the investigation.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225, text abbypd (222973) or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
