Abbotsford – Abby Secondary went into a brief 15 minute lockdown during the lunch hour on Thursday and immediately, there were thoughts of the fatal stabbing at the school on November 1.
A father-son dispute at a home on 32800 block of Bevan Avenue is what caused the lockdown. Allegedly the adult son pulled a knife on his dad.
Abbotsford School District issued this statement.
