CHP: Motorcycle club associate fatally shot on I-80 in Truckee

An associate of a “known outlaw motorcycle club” was shot and killed on westbound Interstate 80 Saturday afternoon, closing down the freeway to the state line.

The California Highway Patrol reported that a motorcyclist was driving a 2009 black Harley Davidson on Interstate 80 just inside the city limits of Truckee when three motorcyclists wearing black leathers “came up on him and fired,” said CHP Officer Pete Mann.

CHP Truckee Commander Ryan Stonebraker said the CHP responded to a call at about 3:55 p.m.. Officers found one victim with “life-threatening injuries,” he said.

The victim died at the scene, and a homicide investigation is underway.
Mann said the victim was associated with the Vagos motorcycle club, but was not a member. He described him as “kind of a hanger on” to the club.
