That's why Abbotsford Police put out an extraordinary public warning Thursday telling people to steer clear of Chadwyn Marcus (Chad) Weber.
Police went to Weber April 11 to tell him of the risk he is facing.
Const. Ian MacDonald extended that warning to those who may come in contact with Weber, a 35-year-old with an extensive criminal history.
He has been associated with both the United Nations gang and the Duhre brothers.
MacDonald said in a release that police continue to investigate the source of the threat.
"The Abbotsford Police Department is providing this public safety warning to create awareness that will allow for the general public to make conscious decisions about their own safety while considering the specific situation that exists for Weber," MacDonald said.
Weber has an extensive criminal history that includes convictions for offences involving violence, drugs and weapons.
Last fall, Supt. Tom McCluskie, of the Gang Task Force, issued a similar public warning telling people to stay away from anyone connected to a allied group of gangsters known as the Dhak-Duhre group.
Since then, there have been several shootings of people connected to the Dhak-Duhres, including Sandip Singh (Dip) Duhre who was gunned down in the lobby of the Sheraton Wall Centre in downtown Vancouver Jan. 17. The murder remains unsolved.
