One man dead, another injured in gang shooting

One man dead, another critically injured in what cops say is ongoing
turf war

The latest fatal shooting in Surrey on Thursday was likely a
continuation of the ongoing settling of accounts between rival gangs
following the murder of Gurmit Singh Dhak in October of 2010.

"If you are thinking of a gang war where there is going to be a . . .
shift in power, I don't think that is what we are seeing here," Sgt.
Bill Whalen spokesman for B.C.'s Combined Special Forces Enforcement
Unit, which targets organized crime in the province, said Friday.

"I think it is fair to say that it is a settling of beefs related to
the murder of Gurmit Dhak last year. A lot of coverage has come out
over the past few years that the Dhak-Duhre group is in conflict with
the Bacon brothers . . . and this is just another iteration of that,
this is more of a continuation," Whalen said.

In this latest gang-related homicide, residents living in the well-off
Surrey neighbourhood where two men were shot Thursday night - one
fatally - said they witnessed a gunman flee into a waiting SUV after
multiple shots ran out.

One of the men was declared dead at hospital and the other critically
injured. He under went surgery in a local hospital. The men were aged
27 and 28.

The shooting comes just days after well-known Surrey gang member
Sandip (Dip) Duhre, 36, was gunned down execution-style at the
Sheraton Wall Centre in Vancouver on Tuesday night. He and his two
brothers, who were associates of deceased gangster Bindy Johal, were
known to be heavily involved in the Fraser Valley drug trade and
allied with the Dhak group.

The Duhre-Dhak group has been feuding with a rival gang involving
members of the Bacon brothers' Red Scorpions.
