ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Albuquerque Police are keeping a closer eye on motorcycle clubs after a shootout left one man dead and another injured.
On Monday afternoon, an APD spokeswoman said the explosion of violence at Eppies Motorcycle Services on Fourth Street NW on Sunday afternoon could be a result of tension between rival motorcycle clubs.
Police identified the man killed as Japheth Seaman.
According the information sent out by APD, Seaman and two other men rode over to Eppies around 3:30 p.m. Sunday and began yelling at people who were there for a fundraiser.
Officers said one of those men, identified as Malachi Seaman, took out something that resembled a collapsible baton and started beating a fundraiser attendee in the face.
At that point, APD said the other two men pulled out guns and started firing into the crowd. Members of the crowd then fired back.
"It went from a festive deal to a taking cover deal," one witness said.
Those in attendance at the event said the three men who started the chaos were members of the Vagos Outlaw Motorcycle Club.
Members of the Black Berets Motorcycle Club were helping out at the fundraiser and told News 13 the Vagos targeted them.
"They came over and retaliated against us cause we're strong here in Albuquerque," said Chale, a Black Berets Member.
The biker then told News 13, "It ain't over with them."
Officer Tasia Martinez said she did not want to speculate on the potential for an increase in violence as a result of Sunday's shooting, saying only that gang detectives are working the case to try and curtail any retaliation.
Malachi Seaman was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
In all, more than 70 spent shell casings were found at the scene. Investigators are still trying to figure out who fired the shot that killed Japheth Seaman.
