The man gunned down at a busy Aldergrove McDonald's on Tuesday has been identified as the brother of one of the gangsters convicted in the Surrey Six murders.

On Thursday, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) confirmed the victim was 33-year-old Justin Haevischer.

His brother, Cody Haevischer, and Red Scorpion Gang associate Matthew Johnson were convicted on six counts of first-degree murder in the slaying of six people -- including two bystanders -- at Surrey's Balmoral Tower on Oct. 19, 2007.

Both are serving life sentences with no chance of parole for 25 years.

Justin was later charged with helping the killers escape after the crime. The Vancouver Sun reports he later pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice and was sentenced to 20 months in jail.

IHIT says Justin Haevischer was shot dead outside the fast-food restaurant at 56th Avenue and 264th Street around 8 p.m., at a time when the McDonald's was busy with customers and families.

Abbotsford police later found a burned-out black SUV that police believe was the getaway vehicle.

"It is a miracle, by God’s grace, whatever language you choose to use, that nobody else was hurt from this,” IHIT Sgt. Frank Jang said Wednesday, describing the timing and location of the attack as brazen, "reckless" and "unacceptable."

Man killed in 'brazen' shooting at Langley McDonald's Police say a deadly shooting around dinnertime in a McDonald’s restaurant in Langley was “brazen” and a threat to public safety. The RCMP were called Tuesday evening to multiple reports of a shooting at the restaurant in the Aldergrove suburb. Officers found a man in his 30s with gunshot wounds outside the restaurant where he was pronounced dead. About 30 minutes later, police in the neighbouring city of Abbotsford say they received a report of a black SUV on fire that investigators believe is connected to the shooting death.

Haevischer is the latest high-profile gangster to be assassinated in public at a Lower Mainland restaurant or cafe.
