Leader of Bronx biker gang shot dead in apparent hit



The leader of a Bronx motorcycle gang was shot dead Saturday in what is believed to be a targeted hit.

51-year-old Francisco Rosado, who heads the Bronx chapter of the Pagan’s Motorcycle Club, was reportedly gunned down by two masked men on Holland Avenue near Mace Avenue in Allerton at about 3:20 p.m., according to law enforcement sources.

The suspects fled the scene in a blue Jeep Cherokee with stolen license plates. Rosado was struck in the head and chest and declared dead at the scene, police said. As of Sunday night, no arrests have been made in the deadly shooting.

The Pagans operate all along the East Coast with over 1,000 members. The biker gang has a hand in drugs, tattoo parlors, strip clubs and junkyards.
