UCSF police take man into custody in connection with Hells Angels homicide
Police have arrested a member of the Vagos gang in San Francisco on charges that he killed the president of the San Jose chapter of the Hells Angels.
A University of California San Francisco police sergeant spotted Ernesto Manuel Gonzalez, 53, of San Jose at 8:20 p.m. Thursday and took him into custody. Sparks, Nev., police will come to retrieve him, according to UCSF Police Chief Pamela Roskowski.
Gonzalez is wanted in connection with the killing of Jeffrey “Jethro” Pettigrew, 51, the iconic president of the motorcycle club in San Jose, who also worked for the city’s Department of Transportation. Pettigrew was shot in the back four times last Friday at John Ascuaga’s Nugget casino in Sparks.
