Gangster Amarpreet Samra was shot dead in South Vancouver as he came out of a wedding reception on Sunday early morning.

Samra was listed by @cfseubc among 11 dreaded criminals who could pose threat to Public safety in August last year.

The 28-year-old Amarpreet Samra, was also called ‘Chucky’.

"Chucky" Samra was shot dead outside Fraserview banquet hall near Fraser St & South East Marine Dr. It was a targeted shooting related to the ongoing gang conflict, say reports.

According to reports in the local newspaper Vancouver Sun, Amarpreet (Chucky) Samra was on the dance floor at Fraserview Banquet Hall with other wedding guests less than 30 minutes before he was shot on Fraser Street between just before 1:30 am.

Both Samra and his older brother, Ravinder, who was also a gangster were invited guests at the wedding. They were aligned with the UN Gang.

A few guests told media persons that some unidentified men had walked back into the hall and told the DJ man to stop the music. At the time around 60 guests were present at the venue.

In an official statement from Vancouver Police, they mentioned that they are investigating the homicide of a 28-year-old man after he was shot this morning.

"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.

In August 2022, Canadian police issued a rare warning about 11 men linked to extreme levels of gang violence. 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.
