The Hells Angels biker charged with shooting a man who dared to move a parking cone outside the infamous gang’s East Village headquarters died of a brain aneurysm, his lawyer said.

Prosecutors dismissed the assault case against Anthony Iovenitti, 52, Wednesday in Manhattan Criminal Court due to his August passing while on a motorcycle road trip.

Defense lawyer Ron Kuby said the biker ​​“died doing what he loved most, riding motorcycles with his brothers.”

Iovenitti had faced first-degree assault and weapon possession raps for allegedly shooting 25-year-old David Martinez in the stomach Dec. 11, 2016.

Martinez had moved a cone outside the notorious E. 3rd St. clubhouse so he could park.

Kuby previously said that NYPD surveillance video showed Martinez kick Iovenitti in the head before the biker fired a single round at him.

Martinez, who suffered a severed colon and damage to his spine, said he had forgiven Iovenitti.

“I’m pas​t that moment of revenge, of anger, of what I was feeling in the hospital bed when I couldn’t move, couldn’t walk, couldn’t use the bathroom by myself,” he said.

“My condolences to his family, to his friends,” said Martinez​, adding, “My blessings go out to all the Hells Angels.”
