|A clash between Hells Angels and the Mongols at a Tempe sports bar left one man dead and another man injured Wednesday night. Three people have been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting.|
Officers were in the area when they heard gunshots just before 11 p.m. Upon arrival, they found a man with a gunshot wound walking away from the Final Round Sports Bar. The man was hospitalized with serious injuries but was expected to survive. A second man found wounded inside the bar was given first aid by officers and Tempe Fire Medical but died at the scene.
|The Southern California-centered Mongols Motorcycle Club has earned a reputation for violence since taking over the Hells Angels' turf in Los Angeles in the 1980s, starting a feud between the two gangs. The Mongols have partnered with other gangs to compete for territory and members with the Hells Angels.|
It is believed that a rule exists between the two gangs that members will shoot each other upon sight.
