Jim Guy and Carmen George, The Fresno Bee, October 5, 2013

One person is dead and at least 12 are injured following a shooting early Saturday at a motorcycle club gathering in southeast Fresno.

The shooting erupted about 2 a.m. at the Soul Brothers clubhouse at Calwa Avenue and Pullman Street, according to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s spokesman Chris Curtice said deputies arrived at the chaotic scene to find hundreds of people running from the area as shots still were being fired. As many as 100 deputies along with Fresno police and California Highway Patrol officers sped to the scene.

Curtice said the Soul Brothers were hosting a dance in the clubhouse and about 500 people were present. The shooting erupted in the clubhouse and quickly moved outside, where a running gunfight ensued on Calwa.

The dead victim and several injured people were found in the clubhouse. Another injured victim was found sprawled on a nearby street.

The Soul Brothers is a Fresno-area motorcycle club that is affiliated with other Soul Brother chapters in Northern and Southern California and several other states, including Arizona and Nevada.

Once a year, the club hosts other motorcycle clubs including the Oakland-based East Bay Dragons and clubs from throughout California and the southwest.

    How is that “multiracial?”

    Most members ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles; some also ride Japanese sport bikes.

    That’s so good to know. Is that supposed to bolster their multiracial street cred because they ride white American and yellow Japanese bikes?

      I wonder how many interracial book clubs there are.

      • Spartacus

        My bet would be none .

          They’re always asking, er, I mean ‘axing’, ‘where da white wimminz be’? Book clubs are full of white women…but on the other hand they’d have to pretend to read.

    I see nothing wrong with being in a gang, so long as it has strong WN morals and it enforces them right .

      Reminds me of the early ’70’s when the blacks were trying to turn any kind of crap into a pimp mobile.

      No true black man wants a riceburner. What they all want is a coalburner.

    The edl was formed out of a hooligan soccer crew in England, and while I have many problems with their policies their stance on Islamization is spot on. Furthermore; I have a few friends in the sons of silence and they’re of at least average intelligence, and quite conscious on racial matters. Lets not insult our allies.
