A gang associate critically wounded in a targeted shooting in Surrey on Tuesday was arrested in connection to an Abbotsford drive-by shooting in September.
Jujhar Singh Khun-Khun, 25, was hospitalized with gunshot wounds while Manjinder Singh Hairan, 29, died following the attack near 127 Street and 112B Avenue around 2 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
The men were linked to the Dhak brothers, both of whom have been fatally gunned down in the spiral of gang violence over recent years.
Khun-Khun has survived two other gangland targeted shootings.
He and three other men were arrested by the APD after a 24-year-old man was shot through the arm outside a home in the 2500 block of Bradner on Sept. 4, 2012, according to the information to obtain a search warrant (ITO) filed by Abbotsford Police.
Khun-Khun and the men were stopped in a Dodge Charger in the 2550 block of Fraser Highway and arrested by police for attempted murder, according to the ITO.
The Charger was stopped after an APD officer had followed the suspect vehicle after seeing it leave the Bradner road area where the shooting had taken place.
All four men and the vehicle were taken to the Abbotsford Police station where their clothing was seized for evidence.
Police then applied for the warrant to search the Dodge charger in which investigators hoped to locate to a firearm, ammunition, shell casings, gunshot residue, fingerprints and other forensic evidence.
The allegations against Khun-Khun in the ITO have not been proven in court, and no charges have been laid in the shooting.
APD spokesman Ian MacDonald said Thursday the investigation of the Bradner Road shooting is ongoing and he couldn't comment on the case, or if a weapon or evidence was located in the car.
The September shooting was the second to take place outside the family residence of Barinder or Brian "Shrek" Dhaliwal, who reportedly no longer lives at the house.
In January 2011, Dhaliwal's sister narrowly escaped with her life after the pickup she was driving was peppered with bullets in the driveway of the residence.
Dhaliwal has alleged ties with Abbotsford's notorious Bacon brothers.
During Jarrod Bacon's recent conspiracy to traffic cocaine trial, Crown counsel alleged Bacon referred to Dhaliwal as a funder who could provide him money to buy drugs from Mexico.
To prevent any more shootings, the Abbotsford police set up surveillance cameras outside the Bradner Road home.
According to the ITO, the victim in the most recent shooting turned into the driveway of the Dhaliwal home with three other occupants in the car when a number of shots were fired.
The group had been returning from a night out at the PNE in Vancouver. No one else was hurt in the attack.
Khun-Khun was previously wounded in a shooting in September 2011 in Surrey while he was sitting in his car waiting for Sukh Dhak.
He was also present and injured when longtime gangster Gurmit Singh Dhak was killed in a targeted shooting in Burnaby's Metrotown Mall in October 2010.
Sukh Dhak, Gurmit's brother, was fatally gunned down with his bodyguard Thomas Mantel at Burnaby hotel on Nov. 26, 2012.
Khun-Khun also garnered media attention after he attempted suicide by throwing himself into traffic after his fiance Sukhvir Kaur Grewal, 19, was killed after falling out a truck he was driving in October 2007.
The pair reportedly had met in Grade 11 at Abbotsford Senior High School.
