‘Shrimp Boy’ Chow suspected in Chinatown contract killing

"Shrimp Boy" Raymond Chow.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal prosecutor says the government has evidence that a man charged in a money laundering and corruption probe centered in San Francisco’s Chinatown arranged a 2006 slaying.

The San Francisco Chronicle says Assistant U.S. Attorney William Frenzen told a judge Monday that Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow solicited someone to kill Allen Leung, the previous leader of the Chinese fraternal group known as the Ghee Kung Tong.

Chow has not been charged with the slaying and has pleaded not guilty to racketeering and money laundering charges.
