Numerous Agencies Investigating Shootout Between Rival Motorcycle Gangs

There are new concerns after two rival motorcycle gangs got into a shootout over the weekend near the Kickapoo casino.  

A possible chance meeting on the highway quickly escalated into a shootout at the gas station parking lot right next to the casino. 

Lincoln County Sheriff Charlie Dougherty says members of the Redneck Roughriders and the Iron Order exchanged gunfire and at least one bullet did go through the tarp at the nearby casino.

“They could have very easily injured somebody that didn’t have a reason to be injured,” said Dougherty.

As police investigated, the crowd grew as word spread between the rival gangs. And a chaotic situation threatened to get a lot worse.

“We were playing crowd control at that point with crime scene tape and everybody was just having a stare down contest,” said the Sheriff.

Police arrested Jimmy Frank Williams, a member of the Redneck Roughriders, and the Sheriff says more arrests are likely to come. Federal, tribal and local police are all investigating to see who the gangs may be tied to and try to prevent this from accelerating into more violence.

“We’ve got a lot of people involved in this, looking at this to try and figure out what exactly happened and where it’s going to,” said Dougherty.

Because all this happened on federal land, federal charges could be filed as well.
