Three gangsters linked to the late Sukh Dhak have been charged in connection with the August 2011 murder of Red Scorpion Jon Bacon in Kelowna.
Jujhar Singh Khun-Khun, Jason Thomas McBride and Michael Jones were charged with first degree murder and attempted murder.
Sgt. Lindsey Houghton, of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, made the announcement at a Delta news conference Monday.
The CFSEU has been working with Kelowna RCMP since the brazen daylight shooting outside the Delta Grand hotel and casino, which left Bacon's associates Hells Angel Larry Amero and Independent Soldier James Riach wounded.
Amero was seriously hurt and is now in jail in Montreal where he is facing cocaine importing charges. Riach was grazed and walked away from the scene, but has maintained a low profile since the shooting.
At 36, McBride has a long history with police. His criminal record dates back to 1998 in Victoria where he was convicted of break-and-enter and possessing break-and-enter tools. He was later convicted of robbery, for which he got a 10-year firearms prohibition. In 2005, he was caught with a 40-calibre, semi-automatic Glock handgun in the front passenger seat of his Lincoln Navigator.
