Shooting at Hells Angels Clubhouse in Providence - 3 arrested

Joseph M. Lancia, 28, identified as president of the Rhode Island Hells Angels chapter, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

Cops say Lancia fired a shot at a driver passing by the club on Messer Street in Providence. Heavily armed cops swarmed the chapter’s clubhouse, shutting down the street for hours.
Prosecutors said video showed Lancia taking an object out of his waistband and stepping toward the passing car at the same time that a man reported a shot being fired at him.

The incident occurred with other people around, in a densely populated area. Shortly after a high bail was set, a man in Hells Angels colours walked into the room where bail is posted with a thick stack of cash. Cops seized three weapons and ammunition after they searched the clubhouse.
