TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Two motorcycle gang members have been sentenced to life in prison for killing the president of a rival gang in Florida.
Court records show 31-year-old Christopher Cosimano and 52-year-old Michael Mencher were sentenced Wednesday in Tampa federal court. They were convicted in August of murder in aid of racketeering and related firearms offenses.
Authorities say Cosimano and Mencher were members of the 69ers Motorcycle Club in 2017 when the group was involved in a violent feud with the Outlaws Motorcycle Club. Investigators say Cosimano and Mencher followed a truck driven by Paul Anderson, president of the Cross Bayou Chapter of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, and fatally shot him at the State Road 54 exit ramp off the Suncoast Parkway
Three others previously pleaded guilty in the fatal shooting.
