Shane Kelter, 32, was just getting out of a white limousine when he was sprayed by gunfire near Wellesley and Bay just after 3 a.m. Sunday."The post-mortem examination determined the cause of death as gunshot wounds to the torso," Const. Tony Vella said in a news release.Kelter was well-known in B.C. and charged last year in a massive undercover investigation along with 17 others for allegedly moving marijuana, ecstasy and cocaine between B.C., Ontario and California.
Kelter and Vancouver residents Walther Edgardo (Sharky) Orellana Aguilar and John (Keith) Wark were facing extradition. They were allegedly working with another B.C. man, Jason I. Ming Wei, who was arrested in Los Angeles in September 2008.Two other Toronto men, Jagmohan Singh Dhillon, 35, and 32-year-old Paramijt (Pumma) Singh, allegedly helped facilitate the transportation of Wei's drugs between Canada and the U.S., according to the U.S. indictment. Kelter had a lengthy criminal record in B.C. and was facing two sets of charges here at the time of his death in Ontario.He was convicted two months ago of resisting a police officer in Vancouver and fined $100. Last March, he was convicted of assaulting someone at Whistler and got a $1,000 fine and 45 days probation. He was charged in North Vancouver in August with refusing to provide a breath sample to police and was due back in court on that charge later this week. Also last March, he was charged in West Vancouver with driving while prohibited - a count he was due to go to trial on next year.In 2002, he was convicted in Richmond of having a growing operation, for which he got a conditional sentence of nine months and an order to pay $3,251.58 restitution. He faced drug-trafficking charges in North Vancouver in 1998, but only two co-accused were convicted.The California drug conspiracy trial was set to resume on June 15, 2010 for the defendants in custody.Many of the court documents filed more recently in the case have been ordered sealed.But U.S. authorities said at the time of the charges that during the investigation, they seized cash and drugs, including a 60-kilogram shipment of cocaine and a 35-kilogram shipment of cocaine. The indictment said Kelter would direct the activities of Wei - the Canadian in California - "related to the trafficking of narcotics to or from Canada and the laundering of money."
Wei was the middleman, the documents say, overseeing the meth entering from Canada and "the trafficking of kilogram quantities of cocaine to Canada from the United States." Wei was recorded talking to one of the Toronto men, Singh, on June 15, 2007 about sending Dhillon "to pick up cocaine from defendant Wei in Los Angeles county to transport to Canada." Wei allegedly spoke on the phone to Dhillon later that week, and Dhillon "explained that he was driving a tractor-trailer so that defendant Wei could load the cocaine."
