The second man hired from Hamilton, Ont., to kill a member of the Hells Angels in Richmond in 2015 was sentenced on Wednesday to 11 years in prison.
Knowah Truth Ferguson was handed seven years for attempted murder and four years for conspiracy to commit the murder in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver.
Authorities have not publicly named the intended victim, but a source has confirmed to Black Press Media it was Damion Ryan of the Hells Angels. He was not hurt in the attempted hit.
Minus time served, that means just shy of seven years total for Ferguson, who was 19 at the time of the offences. He pleaded guilty on May 17.
The other man connected to the plot, Gino Gavin McCall, who was 30 at the time, was sentenced to seven years for conspiracy last November.
The investigation into the attempted murder on April 10, 2015 “spanned the country,” said the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit in a release.
“Investigators believed that this was a highly planned and targeted attempt that saw contracted hit men travel to British Columbia from Ontario for the purposes of killing the intended target,” the CFSEU said.
The victim is “well-known for gang involvement.”
