A shootout as a result of a gang war in Canada’s Vancouver left gangster Maninder Dhaliwal and friend Satinder Gill dead, according to a report in Vancouver Sun.
One of these deceased has been identified as Maninder Dhaliwal (29) of Punjabi Gangster Brothers Keepers Gang who died on the spot.
The second deceased has been identified as Samrup Gill, a truck driver. He died on the way to the hospital due to a bullet injury. The police arrested the shooters on the spot.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team confirmed late on Sunday that the shooting was linked to the ongoing Lower Mainland gang conflict.

“Sea-to-Sky Royal Canadian Mounted Police were able to locate and apprehend multiple individuals,” Sergeant Timothy Pierotti said, adding that a burning vehicle found afterwards in the 3300-block of Ptarmigan Place was linked to the murders.
Maninder Dhaliwal’s elder brother was also shot dead last year. But the other deceased, Samrup Gill, has no connection with the gang.
