Suspected Vagos gangmembers arrested
September 26, 2013, 05:00 AM By Bill Silverfarb Daily Journal

Seven suspected gangmembers with the Vagos Motorcycle Club were arrested in South San Francisco Saturday night for a variety of gang enhancement and weapons charges, according to police.

Police pulled over two vehicles that were in a large caravan of motorcycles after about 30 bikers on Harley Davidsons rode down Grand Avenue downtown just around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, according to police.

The occupants of both vehicles were dressed in “outlaw” motorcycle gang attire and a search of the vehicles revealed that the occupants possessed several loaded firearms, including a loaded shotgun, according to police.

They were likely pulled over for probation or parole violations, said South San Francisco police Sgt. Bruce McPhillips.

They were all dressed in full leather that prominently displayed Vagos Motorcycle Club patches, he said.

The caravan was driving through the city and fueling up at a gas station before departing to attend an event in another city, McPhillips said.

One of the vehicles was pulled over as it was about to drive onto Highway 101 out of the city, he said.

The seven were charged with possession and likely all posted bail, he said.

Later that night, a shooting in Broadmoor occurred with another group of gangmembers affiliated with the Vagos club called Wanted, according to police.

Police responded to a shooting on the 7400 block of Mission Street and located multiple shell casings on the ground near a restaurant there and canvassed the area for those responsible and to look for any potential victims.

Police were unable to locate any victims or suspects at that time, However, at about 10:30 p.m., the Broadmoor Police Department was contacted by San Francisco police, who were aware of the incident in Broadmoor and advised that two gunshot victims had arrived at a San Francisco hospital.

One victim, a 37-year-old man, had suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was listed in critical condition. The second victim, a 41-year-old man, suffered a gunshot wound to his arm and was listed in stable condition and both are Hells Angels club members, according to Broadmoor police.

The victims, along with witnesses at the scene, were interviewed and the case is being investigated by the Broadmoor Police Department.

Police indicated the victims were not being cooperative with the investigation.

Anyone with any information related to this incident is asked to contact Officer Pagarigan of the Broadmoor Police Department at 755-3838.
