Gangster Shot Dead At Wedding Reception In Vancouver
VANCOUVER (ANI) – In a suspected case of gang conflict, a 28-year-old Punjab-origin man, who was on Canadian police’s most violent gangsters’ list, has been shot dead by unidentified assailants at a wedding venue here, in Canada.
According to reports Amarpreet (Chucky) Samra was on the dance floor at Fraserview Banquet Hall with other wedding guests less than 30 minutes before he was shot on Fraser Street between just before 1:30 am. Both Samra and his older brother, Ravinder, who was also a gangster, were invited guests at the wedding. They were aligned with the UN Gang.
A few guests told media persons that some unidentified men had walked back into the hall and told the DJ man to stop the music. At the time around 60 guests were present at the venue.
In an official statement, Vancouver Police said that they are investigating the homicide. “Multiple 9-1-1 callers reported one man had been shot outside a South Vancouver banquet hall near Fraser Street and Southeast Marine Drive at 1:30 a.m. Patrol officers performed CPR on the victim until paramedics arrived, but he died from his injuries,” the statement reads.
In August 2022, Canadian police issued a rare warning about 11 men linked to extreme levels of gang violence. The police have warned the public to avoid being near them. Amarpreet and his brother Ravinder were on the list.
