A Calgary gangster is about to get out of prison, and says he's headed out of the province and away from the city's gang scene. Daniel Andre Landry, who was involved in a shootout between FOB and FOB Killers members on a Chinatown street in 2008, is scheduled to be freed from a federal prison in Alberta next month and will be moved to a halfway house in another province. Landry, 27, was freed on statutory release, which is mandated by law for offenders when they reach the two-thirds mark of their sentence. Although there are few exceptions to deny statutory release, the Parole Board of Canada imposed conditions on Landry forcing him to live under supervision at a halfway house because of his violent past. "Although you verbalize the intent to change and have indicated a change of province to reside in upon release, there will still need to be demonstrated change," the board wrote in a review of Landry's case this week. The document did not reveal where Landry will be living. A violent war between FOB and a breakaway faction that became known as the FOB Killers has been responsible for at least 25 homicides since 2002. Landry was one of five men linked to the FOB Killers in an SUV that pulled alongside a car carrying four men associated with the FOB gang on Centre Street S. on Nov. 16, 2008. The group opened fire, wounding FOB gang member Nathan Zuccherato, who was later convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison for his role in the triple homicide at the Bolsa Restaurant. Landry received a six-year sentence for unlawfully discharging a firearm with intent to danger life.
