Former Hells Angels hitman becomes target as Quebec bikers push into GTA

Paris Christoforou is nowhere to be seen after narrowly escaping hitmen in Toronto and Montreal.

He was once a feared enforcer for the Hells Angels, called upon to collect debts from gamblers — and even to kill — as part of the world’s largest outlaw motorcycle gang.

But today, Paris Christoforou is nowhere to be seen after narrowly escaping hitmen in Toronto and Montreal.

His enemies have grown to include members of the powerful Hells Angels chapters from Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières, Que., which kicked him out of the international club in the fall, police and underworld sources say.

Christoforou, 41, has stopped appearing at regular GTA haunts and police say they no longer know where to find him. The Star was also not able to locate him.

The latest attempt on his life came in Montreal in late January. Montreal police refuse to provide information on this attack, saying only that it’s an ongoing investigation.
