TAOS: Three bikers were killed and five wounded in a shootout at a motorcycle rally in Red River, northern New Mexico, on Saturday, in the latest clash between outlawed U.S. motorbike gangs, police said.
Members of the Bandido and Waterdog groups traded gunfire around 5:00 p.m. (2100 GMT) on the packed main street of the mountain resort town 75 miles northeast of state capital Santa Fe, State Police Chief Tim Johnson said on Sunday.
“It was just gangbanger on gangbanger,” Johnson told a press conference in Red River, adding that no bystanders were injured.
Of the three killed, two were Bandidos and one was a Waterdog, the police chief said. One of those killed was a New Mexico chapter leader for the Bandidos while one of those arrested was a Bandido leader from Texas, Johnson said. –Agencies
