In a very surprising development, and one that has many angles, a 20 year old Marin county woman was arrested for the murder of Hells Angel William Mclean in a drive-by shooting on bustling 101 Freeway this past week.
Law enforcement officials arrested the woman, “under tight secrecy”, last Thursday without releasing any information. She was charged with the murder on Friday. The suspect is being held at the Marin County jail under heavy guard in anticipation of retaliation by prisoners or outside forces.
No further details have been released and the investigation into the murder is ongoing.
As first reported, new details have emerged about the drive-by shooting of a Hell’s Angel last night which resulted in the death of the victim. Originally thought to be riding a Harley in a pack of Angels heading north on Highway 101, the victim was actually riding in a white Chevrolet pickup truck that was leading the pack north.
Bikers have been known to use a war wagon that carries bike parts, “supplies”, and other equipment that the bikers do not have room to carry or do not want to carry on their person or bike.
Worse yet is the fact that these types of open executions are often followed by retaliation and the spark that ignites a full scale biker war. Northern California long the stronghold of the Hell’s Angels, has been invaded recently by the Angel’s most hated enemy the Mongols. The Mongols were the Angel’s adversary in the now legendary Laughlin, Nevada casino mayhem that included shooting and stabbing victims.
The details to this point are sketchy but local television news stations are reporting tonight that a member of the Hell’s Angels was shot and killed along a stretch of heavily traveled 101 freeway in Marin County. According to CHP spokesman, the biker was traveling north through Corte Madera when he was shot. The victim managed to hang on to his Harley as he exited the main Corte Madera exit off of 101.
Within a minute the rider was in the parking lot of the nearby CHP headquarters seeking assistance for his wounds. Not long after his arrival, the unnamed Hell’s Angel was pronounced dead in the parking lot.
