SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Federal prosecutors in San Francisco have charged nine members of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang with running a criminal organization responsible for multiple robberies and assaults and one murder.

The U.S. Attorney's office and FBI announced the charges on Monday. Most of the defendants are members of the group's Sonoma County chapter in Northern California.

The head of the FBI's San Francisco division, Jack Bennett, said their crimes were intended to instill fear in parts of the city of Santa Rosa.

Four of the defendants are charged with conspiracy to commit murder for a 2014 slaying at a Hells Angels clubhouse in Fresno, California.

The indictment also includes multiple charges of intimidating witnesses.
