Chinatown:Daniel Landry, 23, Marcel Landry, 25, Chantha Kim, 31, all been charged with four counts each of attempted murder and causing bodily harm.

Four known gang members allegedly involved in a bitter war between two rival groups have been charged after an early morning shooting in Chinatown on Sunday.With weapons and attempted murder charges already laid in this incident, and more expected against others this week, police are saying this investigation could put a "significant dent" in the fight."This is the latest chapter in an ongoing dispute," said Calgary police acting Insp. Grant Miller of Sunday's shooting.
We think we're going to make a significant dent in it with this particular investigation."The "brazen, targeted" attack of one gang against another unfolded around 1:30 a.m. in the 200 block of Centre Street S. when an SUV pulled up alongside a car and people inside began firing.At least 17 bullets hit the car, wounding four inside, said Miller.Other stray bullets struck nearby businesses on the street.Officers arriving on the scene found two victims inside the car, including one who was wearing a bulletproof vest, Miller said. Later, two other victims, believed to be from the same car, showed up at Foothills Hospital.
Police across the city were given a description of the SUV involved in the shooting, which was later located in the northwest community of Citadel.Inside were four males, one of whom was suffering from a gunshot wound to the head, said Miller.
The three were arrested, while the fourth was taken to Foothills Hospital for treatment. Of all those wounded, only one has been treated and released. All, however, are expected to recover from their injuries.Miller said investigators recovered a couple of handguns and several shell casings, but it could still take some time to sort out all the details and finish laying charges, considering "the number of gunshots, the number of vehicles, the number of people."
Investigators are still pursuing leads, he added. "We're continuing to put more pieces of this complicated puzzle together."Still, the weapons used, the fact that one of the victims was wearing body armour and the location of the shooting is cause for concern."They come armed now. Automatic weapons have been used in the past," Miller said. "These are very serious groups involved in a longstanding, very serious situation. It obviously puts members of the public not related to this at a huge risk."So far, only members of one gang have been charged. Daniel Landry, 23, Marcel Landry, 25, Chantha Kim, 31, and a 17-year-old male who can't be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act have all been charged with four counts each of attempted murder and causing bodily harm.
