Gangster Shaun Roberts recuperating from gunshot wounds suffered in a Chinatown shootout

Recuperating at Peter Lougheed since Nov. 16 from gunshot wounds suffered in a Chinatown shootout, Roberts went straight from hospital to the clink, facing charges of four counts of attempted murder and weapons charges. Two members of the police tactical unit kept a watchful eye as the gangster pearing in physical pain, one side of his face covered in bandages -- was whisked from the hospital's northeast exit to a waiting squad car. The TAC van escorted the cruiser for the trip to the downtown arrest processing unit, while two other tactical cops stood guard at the Lougheed's main entrance. The charges against Roberts stem from the same incident that left him hospitalized for the past two weeks. He was one of five gang members from rival groups shot and taken to hospital early on the morning of Nov. 16 after gunfire rang out between two vehicles in the 200 block of Centre St. S. The violence erupted little more than a week after Roberts testified at a hearing on behalf of gangland comrade Jackie Tran, who's been fighting deportation since 2004. The Nov. 16 gunplay rang out when an SUV drove up to another car and its occupants started firing at the smaller vehicle, said Acting Insp. Grant Miller of the Organized Crime Section. At the time, Miller said police were still trying to determine what transpired before the shots were fired but that it was the result of an ongoing dispute between the two groups. The SUV, which fled the scene afterwards, was later found in the northwest community of Citadel with four men inside, one of whom was suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. Miller had said further charges were anticipated, and Roberts is now the fifth person arrested in connection with the incident.
Charged with four counts of attempted murder and causing bodily harm with intent are Marcel Landry, 25, Chantha Kim, 31, a 17-year-old male who can't be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act and 23-year-old Daniel Landry -- the latter also an associate of Tran's.
