Calgary gangster Roland Yee Hung Chin dead after shooting near Chilliwack

Roland Yee Hung Chin, 33, died Friday morning after gunmen opened fire outside a Kal Tire in an industrial area of Chilliwack. Police say the gunmen fled the scene in a black Dodge Caravan. Chilliwack fire crews were dispatched to reports of a minivan full-engulfed by flames a short distance away near the Trans-Canada Hwy. — believed to be the gunmen’s getaway car.

Chin was a prominant fixture in Calgary’s FOB gang wars that rocked the city a decade ago. Chin, along with his brother Roger, were well known members. He was released from prison last year after serving seven years for weapons and drugs offences. In 2008, Chin’s brother Roger was murdered after being shot dozens of times while driving in his car.
Police outlined the timeline as:
  • 8:05 a.m. the shooting happens
  • 9:02 a.m. the suspect Dodge Caravan was believed to be set on fire
  • Two vehicles flee in tandem from the site of the burning van
