Jacob David Castillo Arrested
The New Mexico State Police have deployed more officers to Red River for the investigation, which is still ongoing. The shootout involved members of rival ‘OMG gangs’, outlaw motorcycle gangs, which the Justice Department defines as ‘organizations whose members use their motorcycle clubs as conduits for criminal enterprises,’ including weapons and drug trafficking. The Justice Department estimates there are more than 300 active OMGs within the United States. The Associated Press said that Saturday’s shooting involved the Bandidos and the Waterdogs gangs.
Witness, Eddie Cook, of Benbrook, Texas, told KOAT that ‘there were people running by where we were standing, screaming: ”They’re shooting down there”,’ as the dangerous scene erupted. I never heard shooting the first round but as they come by, everybody was running,’ he said. Albuquerque Police Chief Harold Medina, who was off-duty, later shared a photo of the event 30 minutes before the shooting occurred. He wrote on Twitter: ‘Prayers for all impacted by today’s shooting in my hometown. Was a great day as I had dinner with my wife in Red River. What a helpless feeling not having a badge, gun, or radio as State Police officers and others enter the restaurant and slowly everything closes down and you don’t even know if you can get to your car or if it’s in the scene.’
According to the event schedule, bikers were expected to be at Bull O’ the Woods Saloon for a live music event by Warning Shot. More than 25,000 bikers were expected to be in town for the rally this weekend. The Bandidos bike gang started in San Leon, Texas, in 1966, according to USA Today. It is the largest motorcycle gang in the US and has thousands of members, according to the FBI. The gang has been involved in distributing cocaine and marijuana, among other drugs, according to the Justice Department.
