Four young men are in hospital with varying injuries after a shooting last night (Friday) at a large house party in central Abbotsford.

The incident occurred just before midnight in the 2300 block of Beaver Street.

Abbotsford Police Sgt. Judy Bird said police who arrived found two injured men in their early 20s both suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

They were taken to hospital.

Two more men – also in their early 20s – also arrived at the hospital suffering from injuries related to the incident.

Bird said one of those men had gunshot wounds, while the other sustained injuries related to blunt-force trauma.

All four remain in hospital. Three are being treated at this time for non-life-threatening injuries. One man is in stable, but serious, condition.

The canine unit was brought to the scene and a firearm has been located, but police are not releasing any details on the make of weapon at this time.
