Outlaw motorcycle gangs not ruled out in shooting death

This is the latest in the strange and terrible saga of Manuel Martin’s’ death at the intersection of the 2 and the 210 freeways was the result of an ongoing feud between the Hell’s Angels and Mongols motorcycle clubs. Here’s Nathan McIntire’s update:


GLENDALE – Police are searching for a dark-colored car that may have been involved in the shooting death of a motorcyclist on the Glendale (2) Freeway.

An autopsy was performed on the victim Thursday, but the results were not available, authorities said.
Manuel Vincent Martin, 30, suffered a bullet wound in the chest but had no other major visible injuries, according to Los Angeles County Department of Coroner spokesman Craig Harvey.
Police confirmed Thursday that another motorcyclist riding with Martin was wearing a Mongols Motorcycle Club T-shirt. The Mongols, a biker gang that originated in Montebello in the 1970s, has been warring with the Hell’s Angels.
Gang involvement is being investigated as a possible motive in the slaying, according to Glendale Police Department Sgt. Tom Lorenz.
Several people showed up to the crime scene following the shooting, Lorenz said.
“The apparel that they were wearing indicated an association with the Mongols,” he said. “There was one individual with a Mongol tatoo.”
“The Police Department has not ruled out any outlaw biker activity that may have caused this event,” he added.

    Looks like the Hells Angels are giving a little well deserved payback to the Mongols for their cowardly killing of the Frisco chapter president. The Mongols are basically running scared right now. They have been busted apart by the ATF, and their incarcerated leadership are rolling all over each other. meanwhile the Hells Angels have them hiding under thier beds like little rabbits. Pretty soon the Mongols will be history and SC will be 81 territory as well as NC.

    That homicide wasn’t committed by a 81. It was commited by a Mexican gangbanger.

    And as much as I hate to admit it, the Mongols aren’t running scared. In fact they are taking California from the Angels. Just look at Southern California. The Mongols OWN southern California. The HAMC charters in Dago, Berdoo, R’Side, Orange County, SFV, and LA County are tiny islands in the sea of Mongols there.

    And unfortunately, Mongols have infiltrated Nor Cal Shasta, Humboldt, Santa Clara, San Benito counties and San Francisco. For a while there were Mongols with Oakland side rockers too.
