Arrest made in Riverside fatal shooting of Orange County Hell’s Angels member

Riverside police arrested a suspect Wednesday, June 21, in the May 21 shooting of an Orange County Hell’s Angels motorcycle gang member in Riverside.

Officer Ryan Railsback on Wednesday afternoon confirmed to The Press-Enterprise that the arrest was made, but would not confirm the suspect’s name to prevent the investigation from being impacted.

More information regarding the arrest will be released at a press conference Thursday, Railsback said.

Earlier this month, police officials said the shooting was believed to be related to a feud between the Hell’s Angels and rival motorcycle gang the Mongols; the feud has been active for decades.

The May 21 shooting — in which 31-year-old James Duty, of Orange, was killed — was believed by police to be the first violent encounter between the groups in Riverside since the 1970s.

Duty and other motorcyclists clad in Hell’s Angels insignia were ambushed at the Shell gas station at 3502 Adams St. in Riverside, officials said.

Duty was taken to a hospital, where he later died. A second victim was shot in the head, but the bullet struck his helmet and he was not injured.
