Hells Angels Members Shot, One Killed in Phoenix

Two members of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club were shot while riding their motorcycles in Phoenix on Saturday night.

One man died as a result of his injuries, while the other was hospitalized with serious injuries. The bikers apparently didn't see who fired the shots, police say.

"We don't know where the shots came from," Phoenix Police Officer James Holmes tells New Times. "[The bikers] are giving us what they can."

Holmes says the bikers were among a group of six wearing Hells Angels insignia on their clothing who riding on Bell Road toward 15th Street when the shots were fired, shortly before 11 p.m.

Police have not released the names of anyone involved.

Despite the motorcycle club's insignia on the clothing, Holmes says there's no indication at all that this is gang-related.
