AB­BOTS­FORD, B.C. — Po­lice in Ab­bots­ford, B.C., are in­ves­ti­gat­ing two sep­a­rate shoot­ings in just un­der three hours in that Fraser Val­ley city. The most re­cent oc­curred min­utes af­ter mid­night on Mon­day when a home in the north­east cor­ner of Ab­bots­ford was hit by gun­fire. No one was hurt and po­lice say neigh­bours re­ported hear­ing a ve­hi­cle speed­ing away from the scene. In­ves­ti­ga­tors say they can’t rule out the pos­si­bil­ity that the shoot­ing is linked to gun­fire just two hours ear­lier, a few blocks to the south. In the Sun­day night shoot­ing, the oc­cu­pants of two ve­hi­cles traded shots at an Ab­bots­ford in­ter­sec­tion, but of­fi­cers say no homes or ve­hi­cles were hit and there are no re­ports of in­juries. Ab­bots­ford po­lice are urg­ing any­one with de­tails about ei­ther at­tack to come for­ward.
