Gunman kills three at LA biker club fundraiser

By Calvin Palmer

Three people were killed and seven others wounded last night when a gunman opened fire at a motorcycle club fundraising event at a Los Angeles pizza restaurant.

The Old School Riders were holding the event in the parking lot of Falcone’s Pizza, in Pico Rivera, when a gunman opened fire and the fled in a dark-colored vehicle, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy Keith Ho.

“The suspect started firing into the crowd without provocation,” Ho said.

Three men, two of them brothers, died at the scene. Seven others were hospitalized in conditions ranging from moderate to serious.

Police are still seeking the gunman and trying to determine if the shooting was gang related.

Pico Rivera is 15 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.
