Vancouver police have taken the unusual step of appointing six alleged gang members after a series of shootings in public places.
Chief Constore Adam Palmer says his biggest concern is that bystanders can be injured or killed during gang-related shootings.
He states that there were 20 gang-related murders and 20 attempted murders in Metro Vancouver this year.
According to Palmer, police believe six men could be targeted within the next few days, weeks, or months.
Recently, deadly shootings have occurred outside restaurants, in shopping center parking lots, on busy streets, and in front of the departure terminal at Vancouver Airport.
A man was killed and two others were injured in a shooting in a parking lot in Burnaby’s busy shopping area on Thursday.
According to police, the victim, Jaskelt Calkat, 23, and all the men and women with him were the targets of the shooting.
Police identified 28-year-old Karman Grewal as a victim of shooting at the airport. He was one of five men nominated by the RCMP as a potential target for the shootings in the 2017 news release.
