3 charged with 1st-degree murder of Jonathan Bacon
B.C. organized crime team made arrests in Vancouver, Surrey, Toronto
The police unit that investigates organized crime in B.C. has announced that three men have been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Jonathan Bacon in August 2011.
Jujhar Khun-Khun, 25, of Surrey, Michael Kerry Hunter Jones, 25, of Gibsons, and Jason Thomas McBride, 37, of North Vancouver have each been charged with one count of first-degree murder. They have also been charged with four counts each of attempted murder.
Bacon was killed outside the Delta Grand hotel in Kelowna after a masked gunman armed with an automatic weapon opened fire on a group of people inside a Porsche Cayenne SUV.
Bacon was confirmed dead at the scene, and four others were wounded by bullets.
Police said the three accused were arrested last week in simultaneous raids involving around 100 officers. Khun-Khun was arrested without incident in Surrey, Jones was arrested in Vancouver, and McBride was arrested in Toronto.
