Seven people were injured after two rival outlaw biker gangs got into a shootout on a Nevada freeway, police said.
Members of the Hells Angels and the Vagos began shooting at each other just before noon on Sunday on the US-95 Freeway on College Drive in Henderson, just 17 miles from downtown Las Vegas, the Henderson Police Department said Monday.
When officers arrived, they found several injured people. Six were taken to local hospitals, two in critical condition. A seventh person was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police have charged three people involved in the shooting.
Police arrested Richard Devries, 66, Stephen Alo, 46, and Russell Smith, 26.
They were each charged with six counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon; 6 battery charges when using a deadly weapon that causes significant bodily harm; 6 counts of firing a weapon at/into an occupied structure/vehicle; and a charge of conspiracy to commit murder with a deadly weapon.
It is unclear to which biker gang the accused belong.
The shooting caused a traffic nightmare in the Las Vegas area as investigators closed US-95 from Boulder Highway to Horizon Drive and Horizon Drive from Pacific Avenue in both directions for several hours.
So far, no details have been released about what may have led to the shooting.
