ODESSA, Fla. (AP) - Florida authorities have arrested three members of a motorcycle gang they say gunned down the leader of a rival gang caught in rush hour traffic.

The Tampa Bay Times reported Paul Anderson was gunned down Thursday while waiting at a red light. Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said Anderson was president of a local chapter of the Outlaws.

Nocco said that three members of the 69ers Motorcycle Club were on Anderson’s trail. He said one of the members walked up to the truck, knocked on the window and then opened fire.

The sheriff said the gangs have national footprints and that there could be more violence.

The three men were all charged with first-degree murder. They are being held without bail at jails in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. They will be returned to Pasco County to stand trial.
