Biker Gang Shootout

An alleged group of Hells Angels and Mongols were involved in a high speed chase as they fired shots at each other. One biker died, while two others suffered gunshot wounds and were hospitalized. No arrests have been made so far. Sons of Anarchy began its final season earlier this month, and as the fictional bikers were involved in numerous gunfights creating a body count Rambo would be proud of, many viewers were starting to think the show had completely lost touch with reality.

Two of the victims were part of the Mongols gang and residents of Corona. The Highway Patrol told the Los Angeles Times that, “Several 911 callers said rival motorcycle gangs, the Mongols and the Hells Angels, were shooting at each other.” Both motorcycle clubs were in the area to hold biker rallies. Hells Angels members had a rally at their Lake Elsinore meeting spot on Saturday afternoon and the Mongols were to have a similar rally in Riverside at night.

The two biker clubs were at it in 2002, when they were involved in a shootout at the Harrah's Laughlin Casino in Laughlin, Nevada, that left three members dead. Mongol Anthony 'Bronson' Barrera, 43, was stabbed to death, and Hells Angels Jeramie Bell, 27, and Robert Tumelty, 50, were shot to death.
