PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Authorities have announced indictments in connection with gunfire last month outside of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Clubhouse in Providence.

State police and the attorney general’s office says 28-year-old Joseph Lancia, of Smithfield, the president of the club’s Rhode Island chapter, was indicted earlier this month on charges including assault with intent to murder and carrying a pistol without a permit.

Lancia was arrested June 11 after police battered down the organization’s clubhouse door. He’s accused of shooting at a man driving by the clubhouse.

Lancia pleaded not guilty at his arraignment on Wednesday. He was released on $100,000 bail and ordered to have no contact with the man who was targeted, but not hit.

A second Hells Angels member, 54-year-old Lance Imor, was indicted on charges of possession of methamphetamine and concealing a felony.
