3rd Indictment In Nevada Slaying Of San Jose Hells Angel

RENO, Nev. (CBS / AP) — A third motorcycle gang member has been indicted on murder charges in the September shootout at a Nevada casino that killed the president of the Hells Angels’ San Jose chapter.

Court records unsealed in Washoe District Court late Wednesday identify Gary Stuart Rudnick as a Vagos gang member and co-conspirator in the fatal shooting of Jeffrey Pettigrew at the Nugget hotel-casino in Sparks.

Also known as “Jabbers,” Rudnick faces an open murder charge along with Manuel Gonzalez, a fellow Vagos member who police say fired the shots that killed Pettigrew. It wasn’t immediately clear Wednesday night if Rudnick had been taken into custody.

Another Hells Angels member, Cesar Villagrana, also was indicted on a murder charge because he was involved in the shootout that led to Pettigrew’s death.
