Man pleads not guilty to fatally shooting member of rival biker gang in Riverside

A Corona man pleaded not guilty on Wednesday, July 20 to fatally shooting a 31-year-old member of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang in Riverside.

Joshua Herbert, 27, entered not guilty pleas to one count of murder in the death of James Duty of Orange and one count of attempted murder in the non-injury shooting of another Hells Angels member, court records show. Herbert also denied gang and firearm enhancements tied to the charges.

Officials say Herbert is a member of the Mongols, a motorcycle gang that has been feuding with the Hells Angels for decades. He was arrested after a month-long, multi-agency investigation fronted by the Riverside Police Department.

Officials said Herbert was in the passenger’s seat of a car on May 21 that pulled up to the Shell gas station at 3502 Adams St. in Riverside, where a group of five Hells Angels members were refueling their motorcycles. Herbert got out of the car, and fired a revolver several times at the Hells Angels. Duty was struck and later died after being taken to a hospital; another man was shot in the head, but the bullet struck his helmet and he was not injured.

Herbert’s next scheduled court appearance is 8:30 a.m. Aug. 14.
