Man Shot After Moving Traffic Cone Outside Of Hells Angels' East Village HQ = 'harassment' - Update

Police inspected the Hells Angels' East Village headquarters Tuesday and removed two planters, a bench and a ramp two days after a shooting outside the club. Cops armed with an Environmental Control Board Summons carried out a visual inspection outside of the property on E. 3rd St. near First Ave.

The territory doesn't belong to them says the NYPD.
The Hells Angels used a traffic cone to mark off a parking spot in front of its downtown Manhattan headquarters Monday — the day after a biker shot a guy for moving one – but police quickly told the group to take a hike. Two cops jumped out of their patrol car around 9:30 a.m. upon seeing the single orange cone illegally holding the spot outside the gang’s headquarters at 77 E. Third St.
The officers tossed the cone inside their police cruiser, prompting a female Hells Angels’ biker to start to cry and a male member to scream, “It’s harassment! This is harassment!”
A 25-year-old man was shot early Sunday morning for allegedly messing with traffic cones set up by the Hells Angels outside their headquarters on East 3rd Street. The gunfire was preceded by a confrontation with a Hells Angel that led to an "all-out brawl."

A prospective Hells Angels member, who was on the ground, pulled out a handgun and fired a single shot that struck David Martinez in the abdomen, cops said. The man is expected to survive. 3 men riding motorcycles are being sought.
On Google Maps' Street View, you can see how traffic cones are set up on both the side of the Hells Angels HQ and the opposite side. It's a long tradition.
