Notorious Indo-Canadian gangster, Bin Toor, who had ties with the Duhre and Dhak gangs, died as he was shot on Wednesday night at the Port Moody Recreation Centre in British Columbia province.

Aged 35, Bin Toor (real name Gurbinder Singh Toor) was shot several times before he was rushed to the hospital where he succumbed to his injuries, police revealed.

Toor was reportedly going to attend a hockey game at the recreation centre but was showered with bullets as he left the vehicle.

This incident comes after a lull in Vancouver's gang violence for the past few months. South Asian and white gangs, who fight among themselves to take control over the drug trade in the region, regularly have violent clashes.

Bin Toor is considered to be the latest victim of this violence and he was said to be criminally involved in cases of drug trafficking, assault and forcible entry.

Police has closed the recreation centre for a probe into the incident and to secure the evidence.

Vancouver police spokesman Const Lindsey Houghton said, "We believe this was a targeted, gang-related shooting. It's a brazen act in a very public place, and it is unacceptable to us."

Recently, the Duhre gang with mostly South Asians have been under fire from rival gangs. Earlier, police had issued warnings that anyone associated with the Duhre and Dhak gangs could be in danger.
