Officials know who killed Hells Angel
The chief prosecutor in Reno says police have identified the rival gang member who killed the president of the Hells Angels’ San Jose chapter in a casino shootout last weekend, but he’s not sure they’ll track him down before rival bikers do.
Investigators identified the suspect from the beginning as a member of the Vagos motorcycle gang, Washoe County District Attorney Richard Gammick told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
The suspect, who has ties to the Bay Area, apparently has been in hiding since Jeffrey “Jethro” Pettigrew was killed in the gun battle late Friday at John Ascuaga’s Nugget hotel-casino in Sparks, Gammick said.
“If we’ve been able to identify him, there’s no doubt the Santa Clara Hells Angels chapter has been able to too,” Gammick said. “He’s probably hiding out in a very small space.”
