A man was stabbed and a dog was grazed by a bullet in two separate incidents in the Halifax area on Sunday.

At 6:45 p.m. Halifax Regional Police were called to the area of Thistle Street and Wyse Road in Dartmouth for a stabbing where they found a 40-year-old man with a stab wound to his abdomen.

He told police seven teens surrounded him and asked for cigarettes and then one of them, a male, stabbed him with a knife.

Paramedics took the man to hospital. He is expected to survive. Police say they don't believe it was a random incident.

In a second incident, police responded to reports of multiple shots fired into a house in the area of Duffus Street and Jarvis Lane in Halifax.

Police say the owner of the house told them bullets were shot into a lower level bedroom in her house. There were two people and a dog in the room at the time. The people were not injured but a dog was grazed by a bullet. Police say they do not believe the incident was random.
