Langley/Burnaby/Mission – OCTOBER 20 UPDATE – The man accused of killing Hells Angel Bob Green was out on bail at the time of the shooting.
Jason Francis Wallace, 27, was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder for the slaying of Green on a rural Langley property on Sunday morning.
Wallace was on $1,000 bail on drug-trafficking charges that he faces with Green’s cousin.
Cpl. Meghan Foster, of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, would not disclose Wallace’s gang links.
But a year ago, B.C.’s anti-gang agency described Wallace as a member of the 856 Gang after he was arrested with Langley resident Leonard Pelletier, 49.
Pelletier is a cousin of Green, the high-ranking Hells Angel found dead about 10:30 a.m. Sunday in the 23700-block of 72nd Avenue.
The killing is believed to have stemmed from a dispute at an all-night party.
OCTOBER 17 ORIGINAL STORY – It started out as am investigation to a suspicious shooting and homicide, and now IHIT announced that the victim was a well known member of the Hell’s Angels.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team say the man killed in Langley over the weekend was 56-year-old Robert Green of Burnaby.
IHIT would not link the shooting of Green to another shooting on Sunday, near the Greater Vancouver Zoo.
In that targeted shooting, a Mission man, who was known to police, was shot in the leg.
Green was shot at around 10:30 Sunday morning in the 23700 block of 72nd Avenue.
There is no information that there is any type of turf war involving the Hell’s Angels.
Police insiders have said that it is rare that the motorcycle gang experiences a death like this and has not had one in quite some time, although this type of violence is not rare by any stretch.
