SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Police say a man has been arrested in connection with a motorcycle-gang shooting that prompted a temporary lockdown of a Santa Fe hospital.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (https://goo.gl/GnXy2A) police on Monday didn’t release names of either the suspect or the man who was wounded Saturday.

But Santa Fe police say the victim was a member of the Vagos Motorcycle Club, and he could become a target of rival Bandidos Motorcycle Club members if his name became public.

Santa Fe police Capt. Robert Vasquez says Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center released the shooting victim Sunday. He received what police called non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say visitors to the Vagos Motorcycle Club member who was shot came flooding into the emergency room, prompting the lockdown.
