Winnipeg police acknowledge simmering outlaw biker war in the city


18:25 |

Winnipeg police say they are cracking down on an escalating outlaw motorcycle gang turf war.
Const. Jason Michalyshen (mih-kuh-LIH'-shehn) says police know of seven attempted fire bombings of businesses and homes in the last few weeks in the city.
He says other homes and businesses have been shot at and a 14-year-old boy was caught in the crossfire on July 4 and injured.
Michalyshen says the violence is being fuelled by rival bikers trying to corner the Winnipeg drug trade.
He says police have made some minor arrests and will beef up resources to end the violence.
Police didn't name the gangs, but the conflict is said to involve affiliates of the Rock Machine and the Hells Angels.
