Authorities in California have arrested five men, all members of the renowned motorcycle club, Hells Angels, in connection with the murder and assault of two separate off-duty police officers. Both incidents took place during a Chris Stapleton concert this past June.

KRON4 reports that on the night of June 18th at about 10:45 p.m., police officers were called to CA’s Shoreline Amphitheatre after receiving reports of an unresponsive male near the stage. Mountain View Fire Department was also called to the scene where first responders treated the victim before taking him to the hospital for further medical treatment. Sadly, the man passed away about a week following the Chris Stapleton concert due to the extent of his injuries. The victim was later identified as 41-year-old Juan Gonzales of Bakersfield.

In addition to the murder of Juan Gonzales, the Mountain View police reported a group of men assaulted a second police officer near the portable restrooms at the venue. The group then left the area.

Per the news outlet, local authorities opened an investigation that night. Several days later, they learned the parties involved in the incident were familiar with one another. Aside from Mountain View Police Department, authorities working the case include the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF). The FBI has recognized the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club as an “outlaw motorcycle gang.” The motorcycle gang has been involved in various illegal incidents in the past.
