Francisco Rosado, 51, who headed the Bronx chapter of the Pagans Motorcycle Club, was gunned down by two masked men on Holland Avenue near Mace Avenue in Allerton at about 3:20 p.m., according to law enforcement sources.

The suspects fled in a blue Jeep Cherokee with stolen license plates, sources said.

Rosado was struck in the head and chest and declared dead at the scene, police said.
