Police in B.C. are warning the public to avoid being around several men, who they say are linked to previous gang-related activities in the province.
The Combined Forces Special Enforcement unit named 11 men who will likely be targeted by rival gang members, putting their family, friends, and bystanders at risk.
“Public warning issued due to the significant threat to public posed by a number of individuals involved in the Lower Mainland gang conflict and their ongoing nexus to violence,” CFSEU-BC said, in a social media post.
“Police believe that anyone with, or in the proximity to these individuals may be putting themselves at risk.”
Police have also promised to seize their property including vehicles.
The following men have been named by CFSEU-BC:
- Jagdeep Cheema: 30 years old
- Gurpreet Dhaliwal: 35 years old
- Sumdish Gill: 28 years old
- Barinder Dhaliwal: 39 years old
- Sukhdeep Pansal: 33 years old
- Amarpreet Samra: 28 years old
- Ravinder Samra: 35 years old
- Andy St Pierre: 40 years old
- Richard Joseph Whitlock: 40 years old
- Shakiel Basra: 28 years old

The announcement comes amid another recent string of brazen, gang-involved killings in B.C. including in Whistler Village last month, where two men were shot dead outside the Sundial Hotel.
