Police found a bullet hole in a pickup truck’s windshield, shot at least six times, near the Vermont house where an ex-Outlaws motorcycle club member was killed over the weekend, a resident in the area said.
Eugene “Buckshot” Suzenesi was shot Saturday afternoon in a parking lot near his home in Vermont’s town of Vaughan in Franklin County, said the resident, who declined to give his name.
Suzenesi was riding his bike in a secured area in the parking lot, but managed to slip away after being shot, the resident said. Police say they’re still looking for suspects.
Suzenesi was paroled last year after serving more than 14 years for robbery, attempted murder and other crimes, according to the Franklin County Vermont Review Board.
“They should talk to more of those members because I sure wouldn’t know,” said the resident, who described Suzenesi as friendly and fond of rapping. “How did they get shot six times and still walk away from it?”
The Washington Post was unable to reach the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, which had no immediate comment Sunday.
The deadly shooting comes as sheriff’s offices in Georgia, Florida and Pennsylvania are investigating whether unlicensed motorcycle clubs were involved in a string of thefts, vandalism and other crimes.
