Anton Hooites-Meursing

Anthon has plead guilty to several murders and is Person X in the Surrey Six Murder trial. He had beef with the UN and conspired with the killing of Corey Lal but didn't agree with killing innocent bystanders. We applaud him for testifying against the Bacon brothers in that trial and wait for new developments.

I have always wanted to know the story behind person X. It turns out he is going to testify against the brothers, which must be why they wont say who he is.

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - At least three people have been hurt in a shooting in downtown Vancouver.

This comes just days after the Vancouver Police warned there could be gang violence on the street this weekend.

The shooting happened around 2:15 this morning near Water and Richards Streets.

The area around the Waterfront Station is closed - we're keeping you up to date in our Traffic reports every 10 minutes on the ones.

The VPD says it's not known whether the shooting is gang-related.

On Friday, the department said there was a "high probability" of gang violence in the entertainment district this weekend.

are we sure the shooting is random?

The guys were on foot when the shots were fired and thus would be hard to miss a target from point blank and up close. How the hell do they keep missing their targets?

Saw on the news that the guys they arrested in the gastown shooting have been released and are no longer suspects.

Back to square one on who the shooters are.





I don't have a link, but i'm sure one will pop up.

shooting a real gun isn't as easy as it seems if you don't practice. so maybe they're practicing?

j/k. no seriously, if you just expect to pick up a .40 and be a crackshot with it, you're kidding yourself.

its not hard to point and shoot

but you're telling me this guy point and shot and missed, at least, 4x and happened to hit 4 other ppl who were grouped together

unless he was trying to shoot a fly that was in front of this group i doubt it wasn't targeted

the chicks were probably being bitches at a club/party or one of them is an ex-gf etc +alcohol so he shot at them


I'm all for the notion that these "gangsters" will undoubtedly hit an innocent bystander but 4 of them? with no one else around (they were standing on a corner) eh...

VANCOUVER(NEWS1130) - It appears there's been another deadly shooting in Metro Vancouver.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team confirming to News1130 that a body was discovered on 10th Street near Cornwall in New Westminster.

It's believed the body is associated with a white BMW which neighbours described to News1130 as "shot-up."

The car has since been towed.

Police have taped off a large portion of the neighbourhood as they continue their investigation.
No word on any suspects or if this incident is connected to recent gang activity in Metro Vancouver.

there was a 3 year old boy in the back of the car when he was shot. That's messed up.

Homicide Investigators have blocked off part of a quiet neighbourhood in New Westminster after a deadly shooting Monday night. The gunfire happened right in front of the victim's young son.

Police were called out to 10th and Cornwall Streets after 8 p.m. where they discovered a man suffering from gunshot wounds. His body was found lying next to his car. Inside the vehicle was the victim's three-year-old son, who likely sat as the shooting unfolded before his eyes.

Corporal Dale Carr with Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says while the victim was not known to police necessarily, this shooting definitely was not random. "For one reason or another, this looks very targeted. It looks as though the individuals or individual responsible, although we are uncertain if it is one person at this time, was clearly focused on the deceased."

The young boy was not harmed and is now being cared for by his mother.

Carr adds this latest shooting is similar to another one that happened back in February 2009 when Nicole Alemy was gunned down in North Surrey with her four-year-old son in the backseat.

No word if the two cases are linked.
When Alemy was shot, she had just dropped her other child off at my daughter's school in Morgan Creek.
After that, it was time to get the hell out of Surrey. Even the nice parts of Surrey have trash problems...

When Alemy was shot she just left her dads place.. Also she offered her dad a ride to the bank but he didnt want to go since he wanted the exercise.. Then the incident occured. My uncle is best friends with Alemy's dad.. Who is a great guy!!!

It's a sad situation regardless. I have no idea what she did to deserve this, other than who she associated with.

sad.

fuck if you have a gun in your hand and some guy paid you 20k to pop some guy, and your standing at his window with a gun pointed at him, i HIGHLY doubt anyone that is that deep into the situation is going to give 2 fucks about a kid sitting in the back

i dont put any of the blame on the gunman in "traumatizing" the kid when his dad lived a life that put him in that position.

How do you know? have you ever taken a contract out on someone? Have you ever collected after a hit?

No, you haven't. You're just talking out of your ass trying to sound like a tough guy, when in reality you don't know how much the price is for someone to die.

Some mob boss in Montreal just got taken out. Do you think some chump just did it for 3-4k?

I'd be fairly willing to guess price is all based on what one is willing to pay, it's not like there are a contractors list of gunmen and why would anyone that has
Somthing to lose hire a junky for a couple grand
