Hells Angels Member shot in Lachute, Canada
The man was riding in Bethany Rd. about 10:30 a.m. when multiple gun shots were heard, the Surete du Quebec confirms.
A resident who lives nearby and who did not want to be named says he heard bangs and then a series of rapid fire shots. He ran to the road and found the biker in pain and lying on the road with a woman at his side.
A Transport Quebec truck brings cones to block off Bethany Rd. in Lachute Saturday, April 16, 2016, after a member of the Ontario Nomads Hells Angels bikers club was shot there.
A second motorcyclist who was riding with them came and dragged the victim away to a ditch, the resident says. About the same time at least one person was seen speeding away in an SUV.
The resident spoke to the victim - an anglophone - who told him he is a member of the Hells Angels.
A source confirms the victim is a member of the Ontario Nomads Hells Angels bikers club.
Residents say they are shocked by the randomness of the drive-by shooting, although one man noted the Lachute area has a long history of biker activity.
