|A 20-year-old man gunned down at an Abbotsford home on March 24th was identified as Jaskarn Lally. He was weeks away from facing trial in connection with a gangland shooting at a Dawson Creek gravel pit. Police said they are looking for a dark-coloured Ford F-150 pickup seen speeding away. On April 24, Lally was expected in a Dawson Creek courtroom to face six weapons offences related to a shooting at a quarry.|
|A man was knocked unconscious and taken to a gravel pit where he was bound to a chair and shot several times in the legs. He was treated in hospital for two broken femurs and numerous bullet wounds after dragging himself to a road. A traffic stop led to the arrest of Lally and several other men including Anthony Larson.|

|Lally was also charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking after crack cocaine, crystal meth and fentanyl were seized during the police search, in addition to stolen firearms and cash.|
Before Dawson Creek, Lally’s name had already been connected to the Townline Hill conflict in Abbotsford, a turf war which began as a dispute between two groups of young people, but has since escalated into a violent feud with links to gangs outside the city. Two men shot and killed in Edmonton in January had previous connections to the Townline Hill conflict. Navdeep Sidhu, 24, and Harman Mangat, 22, were tied to the battle for drug turf in Abbotsford.
|The director of civil forfeiture filed a claim to seize vehicles used to “engage in a violent ongoing gang conflict” between the Chahil and Dhaliwal crime groups and were likely to continue to be used for such purposes. The courts ruled the following year that the vehicles were to be forfeited.|
