Police say two suspects have been arrested following a fatal stabbing in Abbotsford, B.C., on Thursday night.

Officers responding to a report of a stabbing at a residence in the 1900-block of McCallum Road just after 5:45 p.m. PT found a man suffering from life-threatening injuries.

A statement said he was taken to hospital, where he died.

Police said they identified two suspects at the scene and arrested them both. A statement said one of them was a 46-year-old man, but did not provide any details about the second.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is leading the investigation. Officers believe the suspects and victims knew each other.

"We're working on establishing a motive for this sad incident," said IHIT Sgt. Timothy Pierotti. "This incident does not appear to be connected to the Lower Mainland gang conflict."

McCallum Road was closed to northbound traffic from Rainbow Avenue to Marshall Road as police investigated, but later reopened.

Anyone with information is asked to contact IHIT at 1-877-551-4448.
