Guns Blazing, Vancouver gangsters spoil RCMP’s Big Bust

News of “major strike” fizzles after night of mayhem in Metro Vancouver

by

Yesterday morning, B.C. RCMP announced that one of the province’s “number one threats to public safety” had “effectively been removed from circulation,” with the arrest of the de facto head of B.C.’s U.N. gang, Barzan Tilli-Choli. This morning, the media is reporting two dead, and four separate shootings in Vancouver, Burnaby and Surrey. Shortly after 10 p.m., Vancouver police found a man in his twenties slumped over the steering wheel of his silver Japanese-model car, dead from gunshot wounds. Police said it had “all the markings of a gangland hit.” Around 8 p.m., police responded to a call of shots fired at a high-rise suburban, Burnaby apartment. Inside, a woman had been shot dead and a man was left clinging to life. “It’s way too early for us to make any sort of assertions if this is gang related or drug related,” said police, adding that it “could be domestic related for all we know.” Police in Surrey, meanwhile, also reported an 8 p.m. shooting, and at midnight, a Surrey home was sprayed with bullets.
