B.C.'s homicide team has been brought in to investigate a fatal shooting in a quiet residential neighbourhood in northwest Abbotsford.

People living in the area say they heard seven or eight gunshots in rapid succession around 9 p.m.

Police arrived to find an injured man in the yard who had been shot several times.

Paramedics were called and began to treat the man. He was rushed to hospital where he later died.
