Four members of the San Francisco Hells Angels Motorcycle Club have been arrested in connection with a targeted shooting that occurred in July of this year in Sacramento County. The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, with assistance from the FBI and several special law enforcement teams, detained the four suspects on October 24.
The shooting took place on July 8 in the community of Fair Oaks, where deputies responded to a report of gunfire. Upon arrival, they discovered a man who had been shot in the stomach. The victim was promptly transported to a hospital and survived the incident. Detectives from the sheriff’s office gang suppression team determined that the shooting was gang-motivated and that the victim had been specifically targeted.
On October 24, search warrants were executed at seven locations, resulting in the arrest of the four suspects. During the operation, law enforcement officials seized 15 firearms, approximately $112,000 in cash, Hells Angels indicia, and intelligence documents.
The arrested individuals have been identified as Valentino Venezia, Dominic Venezia, Ederic Llerena, and William Kibblewhite. They are facing charges of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, shooting at an occupied vehicle, criminal gang conspiracy, and gang enhancement. The suspects have been placed in different jails in the Bay Area and are scheduled to appear in Sacramento Superior Court on October 27.
