Punjab-Origin Gangster Amarpreet Samra Shot Dead In Canada

In yet another gang war on foreign soil, 28-year-old Punjabi gangster Amarpreet Samra alias ‘Chucky’ was gunned down in South Vancouver, Canada as he stepped out of the banquet hall after attending a wedding reception.

Samra featured amongst the top 11 most wanted criminals listed by Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit British Columbia (CFSEUBC). The criminals, according to the department, posed the highest threat to public safety. The police have warned the public to avoid being near them.

Of the 11 men mentioned in the warning, nine were of Punjab-origin, including Amarpreet and his brother Ravinder. The duo are affiliated to the notorious ‘UN Gang’ active in Canada since 2000. An official statement from Vancouver Police said an investigation has been launched into the homicide of a 28-year-old man after he was shot this morning.

Chucky Samra was shot dead outside Fraserview banquet hall near Fraser St & South East Marine Dr, according to preliminary investigation by law agencies.

“Multiple 9-1-1 callers reported one man had been shot outside a South Vancouver banquet hall near Fraser Street and South East 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.

Investigators believe this was a targeted shooting related to the ongoing gang conflict. The investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with information that could assist investigators is asked to call the Vancouver Police Homicide Unit at 604-717-2500, it further reads. Both Samra and his elder brother Ravinder were guests at the party. It was past 1:00 am when they were on the dance floor when some unidentified men entered the party hall and asked the DJ to stop the music. It was, however, around 1:30 am when he stepped out that he was fired at.
