Man shot and killed in Montreal linked to Hells Angels

Yannick Larose
Yannick Larose, 42, was gunned down in broad daylight in the parking lot of a strip mall. Larose is close to Mario Brouillette, 43, once considered to be a leading figure in the Hells Angels in Quebec.

Yannick Larose, nicknamed "the kingpin of the tinted glass", died after being shot 4 times. Larose was first hit while he was driving his vehicle not far from a shopping center. The wounded man run for his life but could not escape the masked gunman. The shooter shot him at least three times under the terrified eyes of employees and customers.

The gunman then fled with an accomplice driver in a Dodge Caravan, which was burnt after being abandoned. This approach recalls the old modus operandi of the Hells Angels when they committed murder at the expense of their enemies Rock Machine during the biker war that claimed more than 165 lives from 1994 to 2002 in Quebec. The Hells Angels used the Dodge Caravan to commit their murders because they were easy to steal.
Yannick Larose was arrested during the operation 'Dictatorship' in 2009. The evidence showed that he had attempted to take control of trade in tinted glass in the province through intimidation and violence.

Larose was sentenced to 42 months in prison in October 2012.
