One Killed In Apparent Shooting Between Hells Angels And Rival Biker Gang Near Corona
A shooting between rival biker gangs near Corona has left one dead and two injured, and a massive backup on the 15 freeway as police spent the evening investigating the incident.
The incident took place on the southbound lanes of the 15 freeway near the El Cerrito Road offramp in unincorporated Riverside County around 6:30 p.m Saturday evening. Witnesses say the shooting was sparked when members of the gangs flashed their colors at each other. One motorcyclist crashed on the off-ramp as a result of the shooting. The California Highway Patrol says the shooting was between the Hells Angels and the rival Mongols biker gang, according to ABC 7.
Three people were injured, with one dying at the hospital of gunshot wounds.
The shooting completely shut down the southbound lanes of the 15 freeway as authorities investigated, causing a massive backup in the area. By early Sunday the freeway had reopened, but the offramp remained closed.
