Bandido charged in slaying
By Rob LAMBERTI, Sun Media, Sun., December 3, 2006
Vaughan -- The fatal shooting of an influential Hells Angel and the wounding of two others in a Bandidos-run strip club raises the spectre the three were challenging the rival biker gang, raising fears of a "nasty" escalation of violence.
"It certainly has the potential for something nasty for the next couple of months," a police source said. "You don't take out a (Hells Angels) sergeant-at-arms and not expect some retaliation of some sort. He was highly respected."
Reputed gun dealer David (White Dread) BUCHANAN, who turned 33 Wednesday, was shot early yesterday just inside the front doors of the Club Pro Adult Entertainment strip bar in Vaughan. Medics pronounced him dead there.
The Hells Angels' website claims BUCHANAN was celebrating his birthday at the strip bar.
A police source said BUCHANAN, sergeant-at-arms of the Angels' chapter based in south Etobicoke, was reputedly a supplier of firearms to Rexdale street gangs.
Fellow full-patch West Toronto member Dana CARNEGIE, 33, suffered minor injuries. West Toronto prospect Carlos VIRRILLI, 28, of Maple, is in serious condition at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre after the early-morning shooting.
Francesco (Cisco) LENTI, 59, leader of the Bandidos in Toronto and Club Pro's manager, is charged with second-degree murder, attempted murder and weapons offences, York Regional police said. He was to appear in Newmarket court today.
A source said the shootings were captured on surveillance cameras.
Homicide Det.-Sgt. Kevin TORRIE said what sparked the deadly violence remains unclear, but investigators are concerned that the Hells Angels intentionally showed up at the club to provoke or challenge their rivals.
In Project Tandem, which ended in September with the arrest of more than a dozen Hells Angels and one Vagabond, police had discovered a plan to murder a man recruiting new members for the Bandidos. "We're looking into any connection with that, obviously," TORRIE said.
BUCHANAN, a native of Jamaica and father of three boys, was recruited into the Hells Angels earlier this decade after being a member of the Mount Olive Crew, a street gang based in north Etobicoke.
"He was certainly a source (of weapons) for the street gangs in the Rexdale area, his roots," the officer said. "He was certainly very well known in the Etobicoke area, that's for sure. He certainly had no problem flexing (muscle) when he was younger."
The Hells Angels' Toronto website says the group is reeling over the slaying.
Guy Ouellette, former head of biker intelligence for the Quebec provincial police, said LENTI "is one of the important guys in Ontario, to put the Bandidos on the map, to recruit and make sure they will give opposition to the Hells Angels.
"Depending if it's related to bikers, (there will be) retaliation for sure," Ouellette said. "It will be Bandidos hunting for now."
But he said if it was a personal argument, retaliation is unlikely.
"Why (do the) Hells Angels have something to do in a Bandidos' bar?" he wondered, speculating the Hells might have been pressing their rivals to close or move the bar.
LENTI has a long history with Toronto biker gangs.
He had been the president of the Loners, a gang he helped form.
When he defected to the Satans Choice group in the mid-1990s, his truck was rigged with a bomb. It exploded outside his home in August 1995, leaving him with a shattered pelvis and shrapnel wounds.
While a Loner, he was courted to join the Hells by Quebec Hells Angels' Nomad chapter. When that fell through, he was targeted for a hit.
LENTI is a well-known underworld figure, who has been living modestly despite being "well off," a police source said. The centre of his universe was the strip club, where he's listed as a manager, but police suspect he has a financial interest.

Arrest in biker slaying
Hells Angels enforcer killed, 2 shot at strip club in Vaughan
By Meghan WATERS, Staff Reporter
One Hells Angels biker is dead and two others are wounded after an early-morning shooting at a Vaughan strip club.
A man who police sources say is a member of the Bandidos motorcycle club, deadly enemies of the Angels, has been charged in the slaying and woundings.
David BUCHANAN was celebrating his 32nd birthday when he was gunned down at 1 a.m. yesterday inside Club Pro, near Hwy. 7 and Jane Street, the Hells Angels' news portal Real Deal News said.
The website said BUCHANAN is a full-patch member of the West Toronto chapter of the Hells Angels. The seriously wounded man is membership prospect Carlos VIRRILLI, 26, and member Dana CARNEGIE was treated and released from hospital.
York Region police named the dead man and said he was a full-patch Hells Angel, but identified the two wounded men only by their rank in the gang.
Guy Ouellette, a retired Quebec Provincial Police officer who is recognized in court as an expert on outlaw biker gangs, said BUCHANAN acted as the chapter's sergeant-of-arms, caring for the group's firearms and supplying weapons to other members of the chapter.
Ouellette says BUCHANAN would have been "the enforcer" of the gang.
The Hells Angels affectionately call BUCHANAN "Dread" on their website, which yesterday posted a memorial to the biker. The website describes BUCHANAN as a dedicated father to his three sons, who were regularly at the Angels' clubhouse pool.
VIRRILLI was seriously injured and admitted to Sunnybrook Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds. CARNEGIE, 33, was only slightly injured and was treated and released after admitting himself to Humber River Regional Hospital, the website and police said.
The strip club, formerly known as Pro Café, has a storied past and a long association with bikers.
Eleven women were arrested at the club in 1991 for working in Canada illegally. Several staff members and Satan's Choice bikers were arrested in 1989 for trafficking cocaine. Five years earlier, staff and exotic dancers were convicted of the same offence.
A club employee, Frank LENTI, is a full-fledged member of the Bandidos. The gang has sparred with the Hells Angels over their Toronto turf, Ouellette said.
"Normally the Hells Angels won't go there. Why go to a strip joint owned by the Bandidos? There's no reason," Ouellette said. "When you go there, it's a matter of trouble."
A man who answered the phone at Club Pro would not comment.
LENTI was nearly killed by a car bomb in 1995 during fierce fighting between rival gangs, prior to the arrival of the Hells Angels in Ontario. LENTI, a long-time gang member, has ties to the Loners, Satan's Choice, the Rebels, and now the Bandidos.
A man who answered the telephone at the downtown Toronto Hells Angels headquarters on Eastern Ave. told a reporter he did not know BUCHANAN or any details of the shooting.
sources said BUCHANAN has a string of prior arrests. In 1995 he was arrested for assault causing bodily harm and using a dangerous weapon after a tavern shooting in Toronto. Less than a year later he was arrested after police recovered $80,000 worth of stolen computer equipment. He was arrested again in 2000, after shots were fired at a Brampton strip club.
Vaughan Councillor Sandra Yeung RACCO said bylaw officers had no recent problems with the strip club. RACCO said she plans to tackle illegal activities at strip clubs and massage parlours and told criminals that "They better watch out."
Eight members of the Bandidos were killed near Saint Thomas in a internecine struggle over drugs on April 10 this year. Other Bandidos and associates have been charged in connection with the murders.
Ouellette said at the time it would be too easy to pronounce the Bandidos dead, though they have only a dozen members in Toronto who meet in a Parkdale social club -- and five members in Manitoba with a puppet club called Los Montoneros.
In relation to yesterday's incident, LENTI, 59, is charged with second-degree murder, attempted murder and weapons offences. He will appear in Newmarket Provincial Court today.
