Abbotsford recorded its second shooting of the weekend on Sunday night (Jan. 22), less than 24 hours after the previous one.

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) said in a press release that patrol officers responded at 6:30 p.m. to the 27800 block of Pullman Avenue (in west Abbotsford near the Aldergrove border).

Officers “identified a scene” and located a man in his 20s who had injuries that were not life-threatening, the release said.

The investigation is in its early stages, but the incident appears to be targeted, police said.

No further details have been released.
