Arrest made in Santa Fe motorcycle-gang shooting

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police say a man has been arrested in connection with a motorcycle-gang shooting that prompted a temporary lockdown of Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical in Santa Fe Saturday night.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports police on Monday didn’t release names of either the suspect or the man who was wounded Saturday. Santa Fe police say the victim was a member of the Vagos Motorcycle Club, and he could become a target of rival Bandidos Motorcycle Club members if his name became public.

Santa Fe police Capt. Robert Vasquez says Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center released the shooting victim Sunday. He received what police called non-life-threatening injuries.

When the injured Vagos MC member was taken to the hospital late Saturday, police said people started showing up to the Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center lobby. That prompted a brief lock down as a precautionary measure for the safety of patients and hospital staff.
