Charges laid in 2017 fatal shooting in Langley
Tyler Pastuck, 31, was found shot to death on June 9, 2017, at Browns Social House on 200th Street near the Langley Bypass. Kyle Gianis was found injured.
Tull's co-accused in the alleged conspiracy is Steven Mulligan-Brum, who made headlines in 2010 when he fired two shots at a group of teens he believed had slashed the tires on his BMW, killing 16-year-old Adem Aliu.
Pastuck was convicted of manslaughter for a fatal beating outside his Campbell River townhouse in February 2010 and had a record of several assault convictions.
David Tull also faces charges of attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder in relation to a second man who was shot but survived, homicide investigators said Tuesday.
Gianis was convicted in 2008 of smuggling materials for making methamphetamine into Washington state and sentenced to 13 years. He was transferred to a Canadian jail in 2012 and paroled in 2013.
In addition to the conspiracy to commit murder charge, he and Mulligan-Brum are also charged in a separate case with conspiring to commit kidnapping in September 2018.
Tull is charged with first-degree murder for Pastuck’s death and attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder for the injury of the second man. Tull remains in custody and will appear in B.C. provincial court May 14.
