HUNTER: Oshawa murder's tangled web of bikers, drugs, guns

Share:

Two men, both known to police, came together on a bright Sunday morning in downtown Oshawa.

It is not known if murder was on either of their minds, but at least one came armed with a gun.

Prepared. Ready for what they may have suspected was going to unfold.

And by the time their interaction ended in a downtown apartment, one of them was dead and the other was critically wounded.

Noah Renison, 35, is in stable condition in a Toronto hospital suffering from a gunshot wound. He is also charged with first-degree murder.

Justin Blight, 27 and a father of two, is dead.

Renison has a lengthy police record and is a reputed member of Hells Angels outlaw affiliate club the Red Devils Motorcycle Club. He once even posted condolences on the passing of a legendary British Angel named Mick.

In 2013, he pleaded guilty to illegal possession of a firearm, tampering with the serial number and drug possession. Renison was sentenced to five years in prison and also given a lifetime weapons prohibition.

Apparently, it didn’t take.
