Hells Angels member seriously injured in Lachute shooting (video)

A 41-year-old member of the Hells Angels is in serious but stable condition after being shot in the back while he was riding his motorcycle in Lachute.

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.

Hells Angels member shot in Lachute

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 gang activity.

An SQ spokesperson is expected to arrive at the scene Saturday afternoon to speak to the media.
