UPDATE: Surrey gang shooting may be linked to Bacon hit

Jujhar Singh Khun-Khun remains in critical condition after being shot Friday.



The shooting of a man in Surrey Friday may be linked to the gangland slaying of Jonathan Bacon in Kelowna last month.

Jujhar Singh Khun-Khun (pictured below outside court in 2007) is a member of the Dhak group, which is linked to a few other local gangs, believed to be in opposition to the Hells Angels.

Police received a call of a shooting at 9:30 p.m. Friday in the 10100-block of 144 Street. They arrived to find Khun-Khun shot. He was taken to hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Sgt. Bill Whalen with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) and Gang Task force, told The Leader Monday police are investigating links to the Kelowna shooting.

On Aug. 14, four people were shot outside the Delta Grand Hotel in Kelowna. Red Scorpion Jonathan Bacon was killed and others were injured, including Larry Amero of the White Rock Hells Angels.

A Gang Task Force media release on Sept. 7 indicated police had information that something retaliatory was going to happen.

“To date, intelligence and information indicates that tensions amongst rival gangs have increased exponentially since the Kelowna shooting and it’s no longer a question of if retaliation will occur, but when,” the task force said. “The potential for a violent reprisal is not restricted to any one community, and can occur anywhere at anytime.”

The release said at that time, the Gang Task Force had assigned 65 officers to the tensions arising from the Kelowna shooting. Whalen said there’s always a possibility the Dhak group will try to strike back after Khun-Khun’s shooting.

Khun-Khun made news in Surrey in 2007 after his 19-year-old fianceé was killed when she fell from the moving SUV he was driving. No charges were laid in that case.

The same year, Khun-Khun was sentenced, along with an associate, to three years in prison for kidnapping and robbing a truck driver – an incident the judge called “random, brazen and senseless.”
