ON the night of January 13 (Sunday), John Edward McGiveron, 33, and Geordie Wesley Carlow, 33, both of Surrey, (see photos) who were known to police, were shot dead in a parkade in the 9400 block of 128 Street. Police said at the time that their murders were not believed to be gang-related.
(Incidentally, Manjot Dhillon, 27, of Surrey, associated with the Dhak gang, was fatally shot in the area of 168 Street and 76 Avenue that same night and less than 48 hours later, on the morning of January 15, Manjinder “Manny” Hairan, 29, associated to the Dhak gang, was shot dead in the area of 127 and 112B Avenue and Jujhar Singh Khun-Khun, 25, who is also associated to the same gang, was seriously wounded.)
