Police this morning arrested an alleged biker gang member who is suspected of shooting three people shot outside a popular Echo Park music venue on June 21st. Around 2 a.m. that morning, a crowd was leaving The Echo on Sunset Boulevard when bullets were fired into the crowd. "The suspect arrived at the Echo Park club after being informed that a member of the rival Hell’s Angels motorcycle gang was inside the Sunset Boulevard nightspot," explained Jesus Sanchez at The Eastsider LA. Police said none of the victims were members of Hell's Angels.

Following the June shooting, The Echo beefed up security.
