Gruesome video of Brothers Keepers gangster Meninder Dhaliwal, 29, and a second man lying face down began circulating shortly after the midday shooting in a busy Whistler shopping area.

Sources confirmed that Dhaliwal, whose brother Harb was killed in Vancouver last year, was killed. The condition and identity of the second victim has not been confirmed.

Neither the Whistler RCMP nor the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team have released any details so far.

People in the area told Postmedia that the shooting took place near the Sundial Hotel and that Whistler had been put on lockdown. And they said a burning car was later found in Creekside: The hallmark of recent gang killings has been a suspicious car set on fire after the hit.

A targeted shooting outside Cardero’s restaurant in Coal Harbor left Brothers Keepers gang member Harb Dhaliwal dead on April 17, 2021 in Vancouver. Photo: Ryan Stelting. Meninder was with his brothers Harb and Barinder when Harb was killed outside a fancy Coal Harbor restaurant in Vancouver in April 2021.

Meninder chased the hit man for two blocks and then stabbed him in the eye, but was never charged with the assault.

Accused hit man Francois Gauthier pleaded guilty to second-degree murder last month and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for 20 years.

The remaining two brothers, Barinder and Meninder, were among six gangsters who appeared on a Vancouver police warning billboard in May 2021.

Chief Adam Palmer said at the time that “the photos we are releasing today represent those who pose significant risks to public safety here in the city of Vancouver,” Palmer said. “Not only do they pose a risk to their friends, family and acquaintances, but they also pose a risk to people who don’t even know them… every time they go to the gym, go shopping, go to the grocery store, restaurant or bar. ”

Palmer said that, in all six cases, it is “very likely that a rival gangster will try to attack them with extreme violence. And we know that these violent acts are brazenly occurring in public places in broad daylight in crowded areas.”

Meninder was also suspected of possessing a firearm near the Surrey clubhouse of the Hardside Hells Angels chapter in November 2020. But he was never charged.

Two loaded guns were found inside a jeep that Meninder and Hells Angel prospect Gurpreet Dhaliwal were in when it crashed just blocks from the clubhouse.

When firefighters arrived shortly after 8 a.m., Meninder, who was believed to be driving, had fled. Gurpreet was on the scene in his Hells Angels prospect vest. He was also found with a small bag of what was believed to be cocaine and “white powder visible in his nostrils.”

“Police found two vodka cans and two firearms in the Jeep. One firearm was on the floor of the driver’s seat and the other was on the floor of the front passenger seat. Both firearms were fully loaded semi-automatic pistols with prohibited magazines,” Court of Appeals Judge Anne MacKenzie said in a ruling last month.

“Meninder’s fingerprint was located on the magazine of the firearm found on the passenger side. Neither Meninder nor Gurpreet possessed a valid firearms license.”

The British Columbia Supreme Court threw out a search warrant obtained by police for the motorcycle club headquarters, where both men had been before the accident. Last month, the Court of Appeal upheld that decision.
