The scene of the latest deadly shooting over the weekend remains scarred and questions are beginning to emerge about the location of some of Calgary's alleged gang members.
The Basil Ultimate Pho and Fine Vietnamese Cuisine Restaurant remains closed and cleanup and repairs are set to take place over the weekend.
There are still no arrests in the gang style shooting at the restaurant that killed innocent bystander Michael Du.
The shooting also injured three others, including an alleged gang member who police say was the target.
CTV News has obtained some documents from Corrections Canada and the Parole Board which show that two infamous brothers are already back on the streets.
Calgarians still remember the scene in Chinatown in November 2008 where a car was riddled with bullet holes and another vehicle was found in northwest Calgary after a bloody shoot-out between the rival gangs FOB and FK.
CTV has learned that Daniel and Marcel Landry have been released from jail after serving two thirds of their sentences.
The Parole Board says Daniel Landry is a gang associate.
The sentence for their co-accused, Chantha Kim, will be completed on Sunday July 8th.
Another alleged FK member, Shaun Roberts, will be released from jail in October and accused gangster Hans Eastgaard will also be released from prison on Sunday.
Parole documents show Eastgaard was in one of the vehicles involved in the Chinatown shooting.
After a three year period of relative quiet, a handful of alleged rival gang members are back on Calgary streets and that fact has not escaped city police.
“We do have a number of strategies that don't require individuals to be under conditions and as I said earlier those strategies are police investigative techniques that we wouldn't want to discuss publically,” said CPS Acting Insp. Martin Schiavetta.
Police have had recent success in the courts in prosecuting alleged gang members.
Four men with suspected gang ties were convicted in the Bolsa triple murder; two are appealing and lawyers for another are applying for a mistrial based on new evidence.
