Man accused of murdering Hells Angel biker

A 27-year-old biker who was accused of killing another man in a shooting at a California gas station was scheduled to be arraigned on multiple charges. According to Riverside police, the Corona resident was charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder as well as a gang-related special allegation. The charges were reportedly enhanced due to the use of a gun, resulting in great bodily injury.

The incident occurred on May 21 at about 10:30 p.m. The deceased man and four of his associates, all Hells Angels bikers, stopped at a Shell station located in the 3500 block of Adams Street near the Riverside Freeway. The accused man and a second person, who has not been taken into custody, drove by and began to open fire.

The decedent was taken to the hospital where died. No other injuries were reported. The two alleged assailants quickly left the scene, avoiding capture. Authorities were able to gather enough evidence to obtain search warrants at numerous locations. It was determined that the accused man was a documented Mongols gang member.

The consequences people can face if they are convicted on murder charges are severe and can include decades in prison. In some cases, the consequences could even include life without the possibility of parole. An attorney could utilize a variety of resources and witness testimony to mount a strong defense and increase doubt that the accused person was involved in the murder. An attorney may also bring character witnesses and alibis as evidence to bolster the defense.
