The leadership of motorcycle gangs is usually white but their rank-and-file are becoming more diverse.
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Police in tourist-friendly Santa Fe, New Mexico, increased patrols and surveillance amid tensions between two motorcycle gangs that sparked a drive-by shooting and a hospital lockdown, authorities said Wednesday.
The measures were ordered after a member of the Vagos Motorcycle Club was shot and wounded while the home of a Bandidos Motorcycle Club member was being riddled with bullets in a drive-by attack, police spokesman Greg Gurule said.
The situation has some residents on edge in the capital of New Mexico, known for its tranquil historic plaza, art galleries and festivals.
