Video: Massive Funeral Procession for Hells Angels Member Shot and Killed in Phoenix

There was a massive funeral procession over the weekend for Patrick Eberhardt, a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club who was shot and killed earlier this month.

Eberhardt was among a group of six bikers wearing Hells Angels insignia on their clothing who were riding on Bell Road toward 15th Street when the shots were fired on the night of February 7.

Eberhardt and another man were hit, and Eberhardt, a member of the Hells Angels' Cave Creek chapter, died as a result of his injuries.

The bikers apparently never saw who shot at them while they were riding near 15th Street and Bell Road. A Phoenix police spokesman told New Times earlier this month that the bikers were "giving us what they can," but didn't know where the shots came from,

We've reached out to Phoenix police to see if there's any update on the investigation, and we'll update this post when we hear back.

A photo of Eberhardt, seen at the end of the video above, identifies him as the treasurer of the Cave Creek chapter.

UPDATE 8:44 a.m.: "We have nothing new at this time," Phoenix Police Officer James Holmes says.
