man wounded as many as five times in a shooting late Sunday outside a downtown tavern remains hospitalized in Boston

Wednesday, 29 September 2010


 local man wounded as many as five times in a shooting late Sunday outside a downtown tavern remains hospitalized in Boston while detectives continue to search for the gunman.
Police identified the victim as Jesse Michaud, 29, of Goffstown Road, who was shot in the shoulder, thigh and arm in the 11:30 p.m. shooting outside TJs Sports Bar, 21 Central St.
Capt. Gerald Lessard said none of Michaud's vital organs was hit and his injuries are not considered life-threatening although he remains hospitalized at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
Lessard said investigators have developed some leads and he expects "we will put this together soon." A lot of people were present when the shooting happened, he said, and interviews are still being done.
He acknowledged the tavern is frequented by people associated with motorcycle gangs, but said "from what I gather" the shooting is not gang-related. Some people were arguing and one of them pulled out a gun and shot Michaud up to five times, police said.
When officers arrived, they found him slumped against the building and immediately called for an ambulance.

A 27-year-old man, believed to be part of the Lone Wolf gang, was arrested after police found drugs at his house nearby.
He will face court later this month and the 30-year-old man will appear at Penrith Local Court today.

Bail hearings begin for alleged Hells Angels

Bail hearings begin for alleged Hells: "bail hearing for nine men arrested in last year's province-wide roundup of Hells Angels and their associates.
The nine, who saw their bail hearing begin yesterday at the Gouin courthouse, are among many who have sought a release since their arrests in April 2009 in Operation SharQc, a three-year police investigation that took aim at almost the entirety of the outlaw motorcycle gang's membership spread out in five chapters in Quebec.
On April 15, 2009, officers from several police forces arrested most of the 156 people named in an indictment that lists several serious charges including conspiracy, gangsterism and 22 counts of first-degree murder. The murders were carried out within the context of a bloody conflict over drug trafficking turf between the Hells Angels and rival criminal organizations that stretched from 1994 to 2002, a period commonly referred to as the biker war."

Bikie Gangs | Mother of Hells Angel hopes Comancheros rot in hell

Bikie Gangs Mother of Hells Angel hopes Comancheros rot in hell: "arrest of two Comanchero bikie members in relation to the shooting of Peter Zervas outside the family's Lakemba apartment block has done little to ease Frederika Bromwich's pain.
The mother of four lost her son Anthony Zervas when he was bashed to death at Sydney Airport during a brawl between two bikie gangs in March last year. Seven days later his older brother, Peter, was shot eight times as he drove into the car park beneath his mother's apartment block.

Tuesday, 28 September 2010

Quebec police arrest 10 in biker case as contract killer turns informant: "In fact, the fit man with his carefully groomed beard was a cold-blooded contract killer, one of the worst Quebec has ever seen. Working primarily for enemies of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang, Gallant was responsible for 28 killings and 13 attempted murders between 1978 and 2003, police say.
After investigators finally caught up with him in 2006, he decided to talk, and on Thursday the Sûreté du Québec announced the arrests of 10 people allegedly connected to Gallant’s killings. They were still seeking an 11th suspect, Gallant’s friend and former cycling partner Jacqueline Benoît, who is wanted on two charges of murder and one of attempted murder. Among those arrested are prominent organized-crime figures Raymond Desfossés and Fréderic Faucher, each of whom faces six murder charges."

Bikies, aged 26 and 30, are Comanchero members and were arrested about 7am (AEST) on Monday at home in Matraville, in Sydney's southeast.

Monday, 27 September 2010

Two brothers from an outlaw motorcycle gang have been arrested over the shooting of a rival gang member in Sydney.
Police say the men, aged 26 and 30, are Comanchero members and were arrested about 7am (AEST) on Monday at home in Matraville, in Sydney's southeast.
Officers from the Gangs Squad and the anti-bikie Strike Force Raptor executed simultaneous warrants at the premises and at the Comanchero clubhouse at Milperra, in Sydney's southwest.
The brothers are expected to be charged over the shooting of Hells Angel member Peter Zervas, who was gunned down on March 29, 2009 while getting out of his car in front of his Lakemba residence.
Mr Zervas was shot multiple times but survived the attack.
Both men are expected to appear before Waverley Local Court on Monday charged with conspiracy to murder.
A week before Mr Zervas was shot, his brother Anthony was bludgeoned to death in a brawl at Sydney airport involving Comanchero and Hells Angels.

13 bikies for trial over airport brawl

Saturday, 25 September 2010

13 bikies for trial over airport brawl: "Thirteen men will go on trial over a fatal brawl between warring bikie gangs at Sydney Airport 18 months ago that sparked a statewide police crackdown.
An ongoing conflict between the Hells Angels and Comanchero gangs spilled into the public arena with the killing of 29-year-old Anthony Zervas on March 22, 2009.
An autopsy found that Mr Zervas, linked to the Hells Angels, suffered blunt-force head trauma and three stab wounds."Ten Comanchero bikies will stand trial for murder over a 'violent encounter' with rival gang the Hells Angels at Sydney airport, a magistrate has ruled.




Anthony Zervas, 29, was killed during the brawl on March 22, 2009, after a chance meeting of gang members on a domestic flight.



Ten Comanchero were charged with his murder and three Hells Angels were charged with riot and affray.



After eight weeks of submissions at a committal hearing, magistrate John Favretto has found that a properly instructed jury could convict the men on a murder charge,.



'The evidence is capable of satisfying a properly instructed jury...that each of the accused persons have committed an indictable offence,' he said.



The 10 accused are Comanchero boss Mahmoud 'Mick' Hawi, Farres Abounader, Maher Aouli, Tiago Costa, Ismail Eken, Zoran Kiscanin, Frank La Rosa, Christian Menzies, Pomare Pirini and Usama Potrus.



Lawyers for some of the men submitted during the committal hearing that the Comanchero were acting in self-defence.



'It is a matter for a jury whether the actions of Hawi and others were done in the course of self-defence,' Mr Favretto said.



He said the evidence alleged Menzies and Hawi used a bollard to bash Mr Zervas, while Abounader had allegedly stabbed him with a knife.



Mr Zervas died from blunt-force trauma to the head and three stab wounds caused by a knife and scissors.



Some of the accused shook their heads as the decision was made, with one heard to mention 'corruption'.



None of the men applied for bail and the matters have been adjourned to the NSW Supreme Court on November 4.



A decision on the committal of the three Hells Angels charged over the same incident will be given by Mr Favretto later on Thursday.

DPS GIITEM finds evidence Hells Angels is restarting a local chapter - The Prescott Daily Courier - Prescott, Arizona

DPS GIITEM finds evidence Hells Angels is restarting a local chapter - The Prescott Daily Courier - Prescott, Arizona: "Arizona Department of Public Safety Gang and Immigration Intelligence Team Enforcement Mission (GIITEM) found evidence that leads it to believe the Hells Angels gang was restarting the Skull Valley chapter, according to documents released Thursday by the Yavapai County Attorney's Office.

The evidence includes patches found on one member's vest, a ledger, bank bags found in a suspect's car, and entries in two suspects' notebooks, according to the DPS GIITEM report.

While looking at cuts, the leather or denim vests worn to show affiliation with a certain gang, the detective's team helping the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office investigate the shooting between the Hells Angels and Vagos gangs last month found a patch that read 'YAVAPAI CO' on cuts worn by Michael Koepke.

Koepke was the first Hells Angels gang member that a DPS GIITEM detective recognized as he walked through the crime scene. The detective wrote in his report that Koepke smiled at him and then looked away as the detective walked by.

On the left side of the cuts when they're worn at the top are patches, also called flashes, indicating Michael Koepke holds the position of sergeant at arms for the Nomad chapter of the Hells Angels gang, and below the flashes is a 'YAVAPAI CO' patch, also called a side rocker."

Complaints About Horsemen Led To Deadly Shootout - :: Cincinnati news story :: LOCAL 12 WKRC-TV in Cincinnati: "complaints about the Iron Horsemen motorcycle gang led them to investigate activity at a Camp Washington bar this weekend. That investigation ended in a shootout between officers and members of the gang, killing one gang member and injured two police officers and a second gang member.

Harold Seavey, an enforcer for the Iron Horsemen, was shot and killed during the incident Saturday night at J.D.'s Honky Tonk Bar on Spring Grove Avenue. The names of the injured police officers and the injured Iron Horseman have not been released.

At a news conference this morning, Chief Streicher says that the delay in releasing information about the shootout was because the two injured undercover officers have been under sedation and were not available for debriefing until yesterday."

Iron Horsemen Gun battle at JD's Honky Tonk Bar

Wednesday, 22 September 2010

Gun battle at JD's Honky Tonk Bar on Spring Grove Avenue Saturday night killed one person, injured another, and also injured two undercover Cincinnati Police officers. The battle all started between police and a motorcycle club called The Iron Horsemen. Police estimate 30 shots were fired during the battle.
Streicher told FOX19 that further investigation revealed the man who died was a member of the Iron Horsemen who had fired shots at police. It was originally believed that the victim was an innocent bystander.
An attorney for the Iron Horsemen, Mike Schulkens, says the victim, whose name is Harold, was guarding the door because there had been some tension building between the Iron Horsemen and another motorcycle club called the Detroit Highwaymen. The Highwaymen were reportedly trying to start a club in Cincinnati.
When Harold saw two men approaching in masks, he assumed they were members of the Detroit Highwaymen who were there to kill members of the Iron Horsemen, so he opened fire.
Streicher said he doesn't know if the officers were wearing masks or if they had any clothing or accessories identifying them as police. Masks are sometimes worn by undercover officers to hide their identity.
Police will only say that the officers were there 'conducting an investigation.' No other information is available on why the officers were there.
The Iron Horsemen also have a hangout in Covington, and Schulkens says he has met with both Covington Police and with Chief Streicher, telling them that the Iron Horsemen do not have anything against the police.
Streicher said the names of the officers will not be released because of their undercover status."

Witness to police and biker shooting caught in the crossfire - FOX19.com and FOX19 News, weather, traffic, and sports for Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky |

Witness to police and biker shooting caught in the crossfire -: "'He yelled 'it was a gang fight!' He didn't yell 'the police are here!', he didn't yell 'the police and bikers are fighting!' he yelled it was a gang fight,' according to Shearer's attorney.
Wilhoit says Shearer threw his two sons under a table for cover, and when the gunfire stopped, Shearer and his sons were taken into custody and questioned before being released.
Wilhoit says Cincinnati Police provoked violence with innocent bystanders around Saturday night and he wants to know why.
When FOX19 contacted Fraternal Order of Police, President Kathy Harrell told us she was unhappy with the way the media was reporting the story and hung up the phone.
Minutes later she talked to 700WLW Bill Cunningham, telling him officers went in 14 deep, and despite masks, were obviously police officers.
'They knew we were the police there's never a question about the fact they knew we were police...there's no outrage over the fact that there was a meeting of an outlaw motorcycle gang that ambushed Cincinnati Police,' Harrell said on the show.
Harrell also told Cunningham any wrong doing that's alleged will be investigated by the police department."

Normand Marvin (Casper) Ouimet, a member of the gang's Trois Rivieres chapter who is wanted in a case where he is alleged to have taken control of masonry companies to launder money.

16 people named in Operation SharQc are still being sought, according to the Surete du Quebec's website. They include Normand Marvin (Casper) Ouimet, a member of the Hells Angels Trois Rivieres chapter who iswanted in a case where he is alleged to have taken control of masonry companies to launder money.
Included among the nine men who began their bail hearing are Normand (Billy) Labelle, 55, Michel (Sky) Langlois, 64, Yves (Flag) Gagne, 59, Bertrand Joyal, 53, and Marc-Andre Hotte, 38. All five are alleged to be full-patch members of the gang.
Superior Court Justice James Brunton placed a publication ban on all evidence that will be presented over the next two weeks.
Despite the very serious charges involved, being granted a release in Operation SharQc is not an impossible task. Earlier this year, the Quebec Court of Appeal supported a decision Brunton made in August 2009 where he granted the release of six men. At least 16 people to date have been released while they await a possible trial."

Iron Horseman Motorcycle Club member Harry Seavey Jr. was killed during the fight after police said he fired at officers when they entered JD's Honky Tonk

"Iron Horseman Motorcycle Club member Harry Seavey Jr. was killed during the fight after police said he fired at officers when they entered JD's Honky Tonk.
Investigators said Seavey was an enforcer for the motorcycle club and that he was called in from Maine.
On Tuesday, the leader of Cincinnati's Fraternal Order of Police is taking aim at Police Chief Tom Streicher for comments he made about the shootout.
FOP President Kathy Harrell said that despite the Iron Horsemen's growing numbers in the Tri-State, Streicher is being too nice to the motorcycle club.
'For anyone to think that the Iron Horsemen are not involved in criminal activity, it's ludicrous,' Harrell said.
Harrell made the statements after Streicher was interviewed by radio station 700 WLW's Bill Cunningham.
Cunningham had asked Streicher if Seavey might have thought he was under attack.
Streicher responded, 'There's no reason to disbelieve that, and it's certainly one of the possible explanations that are there.'
Harrell said that 14 officers met before going into JD's Honky Tonk and that they were clearly marked as police."
