SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - Police in Nevada and California are looking for a 53-year-old member of a motorcycle gang accused of killing the president of the San Jose chapter of the rival Hells Angels club at a casino.

An arrest warrant unsealed Thursday says Ernesto Manuel Gonzalez, of San Jose, is the member of the Vagos gang who killed Jeffery "Jethro" Pettigrew inside the casino in Sparks last weekend.

Police say Pettigrew was shot four times in the back. They say
security video shows Gonzalez approaching Pettigrew with a gun
before casino patrons appear to react to gunfire. Pettigrew falls to the floor, then Gonzalez puts the gun in his waistband and flees. His whereabouts are unknown.

The district attorney suspects the Hells Angels are looking for him too.
