Detectives Probing Hell’s Angels Shooting Look to Head Off Gang War

Detectives are running down leads in an attack that saw gunmen on motorcycles open fire on the Hells’ Angels Bronx clubhouse earlier this month — a shooting they hope to solve before the violence escalates, authorities said.

A police official told Bronx Justice News investigators are examining all possibilities in the case, including whether a rival motorcycle gang shot up the Angels’ new Throggs Neck digs on Jan. 2.

The motorcycle club, which has historically doubled as a violent street gang, recently relocated its headquarters from Manhattan to the Bronx.

Now, investigators are concerned the Angels will strike back before the culprits responsible for the clubhouse shooting are arrested.

The property was fired upon by multiple shooters on motorcycles, who rode away and have not been caught, authorities said.

Hells Angels prospect charged with threatening police officers

City police have charged a prospective member of a local Hells Angels chapter with threatening two of their officers.

The service said the verbal threats were made to the officers during the man’s arrest on Dec. 11 on an unrelated matter at a home in the 5600 block of 20th Street S.W.

The prospect for the outlaw motorcycle group is accused of making comments to one officer while being transported to the arrest processing unit.

He is also accused of directing threats at another officer in a courtroom during his bail hearing.

Police accuse the man of using the Hells Angels’ reputation for intimidation and violence by telling the police members he’d done considerable research on them and knew their home addresses.

The man was clad in support gear denoting an association with the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club Southland Chapter during both incidents and is a self-admitted prospect with the group, say police.
