A notorious Indo-Canadian gangster was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in Vancouver in the Canadian province of British Columbia.
Tejinder Singh Malli, 29, and another man were shot when they were sitting in a car parked on Cordova Street near Thurlow, a Vancouver police department statement said Tuesday.
When police arrived they found Malli in the car and the second victim a short distance away.
Both victims were rushed to hospital with serious injuries.
While Malli succumbed to his injuries, the second victim, a 28-year-old man from North Vancouver, remains in hospital in stable condition.
The victims, known to the police, are associated with gangs and also connected to the drug trade, the statement said.
Police said the murder does appear to be targeted and investigation into the case is underway.
According to The Vancouver Sun, Malli was once aligned with the Red Scorpion gang but went on to switch gang allegiances several times.
