Man in Leesburg motorcycle shooting dies from injuries, cops say

A man involved in a shooting between two motorcycle clubs at a gas station during Leesburg Bikefest last month died over the weekend, police said Monday.

David Donovan, 41, whose Facebook pictures show him wearing Kingsmen Motorcycle Club gear, died from three gunshot wounds he incurred during a shooting about 8 p.m. April 29 at a Circle K gas station at 3300 W. Main St., Leesburg police Lt. Joe Iozzi said. He said he learned of Donovan’s death Sunday morning at a Sanford hospital.

Police said the shooting started from an argument between members of the two motorcycle clubs. The Circle K is about three miles from downtown Leesburg, where the annual biker extravaganza was being held.

Marc Knotts, 48, who was identified in a Marion County arrest report as a member of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club also was shot in the back, arm and leg during the shooting and recovered from his wounds, Iozzi said.

Knotts was wearing a leather vest embedded with ballistic-proof panels, Iozzi said.

Two handguns, several ammunition magazines and weapons, such as clubs, were found at the scene, he said.

The Outlaws have 1,700 members and about 180 chapters worldwide, including in Orlando and Osceola County, according to the FBI.

In New York, 16 Kingsmen members were indicted by the U.S. attorney for its “major racketeering operation” in 2016.
