Williams Lake RCMP issue warning about man linked to gang violence
Mounties in Williams Lake issued a warning Saturday about a man they say has ties to gang violence.
RCMP warn that interactions with Lashway Merritt could pose a risk to the residents of Williams Lake.
“Due to the threat to the public posed by this individual through their connection to criminal activity and high level of violence, police believe that anyone associated or in close proximity to him may be putting themselves at risk,” said Staff Sgt Kris Clark, a spokesperson for the Williams Lake RCMP.
Investigators say Merritt has recently been the victim of a shooting, which is believed to be gang related. They believe he may still be at risk.
“This not only poses a risk to the individual but also anyone who associates with him or anyone who is in proximity to him,” said Clark, in a statement.
