A Bronx property recently transformed into an official Hell’s Angels clubhouse became a target of gun violence Thursday, fired upon by multiple shooters on motorcycles, authorities said.
More than a dozen bullet casings were found along the perimeter of the Throggs Neck property, a former American Legion post, following the 10:35 p.m. shooting, according to police.
The property sustained damage but no injuries were reported, authorities said.
The controversial motorcycle club, which has historically doubled as a criminal gang involved in numerous illegal rackets and acts of violence, recently relocated its New York City headquarters to the Bronx from the East Village.
No arrests have been announced in connection with the shooting.
