It happened just after 10 p.m. and, according to police, started at 5980 Lamar St. in Arvada. During the investigation, Lamar Street was closed between 58th and 62nd.

“It was a pretty brutal situation people were gunned down on their bikes as they were riding in the steet,” Nightwolf Band drummer, John Akal said.

Witnesses claim they heard 10 to 15 shots fired. Caught in the crossfire on Lamar Street was a Good Samaritan named Ryan McPherson.

“He was bleeding out of his ear and he was bleeding out the back of his head,” Akal said.

McPherson is the lead singer in the classic rock band, Nightwolf. The band had just finished their second set at a nearby bar and went outside to get some air, when they spotted a man lying in the street. Bandmate, Akal says Ryan rushed to help.

“He’s a big teddy bear of a guy. This is absolutely in his character to go to help someone,” Akal said.

But as Ryan was tending to the person with the gunshot wound. Police say he was assaulted.

“Somebody came up behind him and clubbed him with something and caused severe head trauma,” Akal said.

Akal ran over to Ryan’s side, and stayed with him until the ambulance arrived.

“We were trying to talk to him all the while saying his name. But really we couldn’t even get a hand squeeze out of him,” Akal said.

McPherson is in an induced coma at a local hospital. Akal is hoping police will narrow in on the suspects.

“I’m hoping they get caught. I’m hoping they are prosecuted for this.”

A fundraiser has been set up to help McPherson.

It’s unclear how the clash between the Hells Angels and Mongols motorcycle clubs started. Arvada Police do not have suspects in custody. Anyone with information about this incident should contact Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP.


  1. Fuck it everyone. It’s not the Old West, with shootouts in the streets, and there really wasn’t all that much of that. That’s just TV & Movie bullshit and fiction.
    This is just going to bring shit down on everyone else in the state in particular, and add to those degenerates in every LEO coming for everybody even harder. Idiots, you’re giving them an excuse and unnecessary opportunity.


  2. Steph, this war has been going on for decades (all over a woman), if you put yourself in the middle of a OMC war then expect no mercy, you’re just a casualty, this isn’t Antifa little kids. Speaking of which, the police can’t handle a bunch of little white kids with bats tearing up the country but they will be all over this because we take care of our own business.



  3. This has been simmering for sometime. Folks who are citizens should refrain from running their CS and mind thier own business. OS put it right you get involved expect NO mercy.


  4. What happen to the good old days where men got down like men don’t take a bad ass to shoot someone takes a coward if there so bad ass bikers 👊 fight


  5. The good times are the good times but when you’re labeled there is no Brotherhood these are the same Brothers that’ll take you out.


  6. @ Nomad.
    Never in my life have I ever seen a “brother” turn on another brother unless they went out bad and you don’t go out bad for no fucking reason. I have seen attitude adjustments that were always done in private and they needed to happen.
