After years of relative peace, Chicago’s infamous Outlaws Motorcycle Club once again is at war with a rival group, according to cops and bikers.
This time, they say, it’s with the Mongol Nation Motorcycle Club, which has been making an incursion into the Outlaws’ Chicago turf.
Early on Nov. 6, four Outlaws members and a member of the Mongol Nation Motorcycle Club were shot at a bar in Archer Heights on the Southwest Side where the Mongols were celebrating a birthday, according to Chicago police reports.
As many as 20 Outlaws members walked in to Tony O’s Studio 31 Lounge at 5147 S. Archer Ave., near Midway Airport, looking for payback for a shooting last year, a law enforcement source says.
According to police reports, the Mongols shot one of the Outlaws, a 34-year-old suburban man, in the left elbow. That man and a high-ranking Outlaw also had been shot on Feb. 27, 2021, during a brawl with the Mongols in Berwyn.
