Three people were killed in a shooting between rival biker gangs at a New Mexico motorcycle rally on Saturday, which also happened to be Memorial Day.

Anthony Silva, 26, Randy Sanchez, 46, and Damian Breaux, 46, were also identified as victims by police.

Officers initially discovered two people dead and six injured. However, one of the five injured people taken to the hospital died later. A sixth victim was airlifted to a Denver hospital.

A motorbike gang member, Jacob David Castillo, has been charged with an open count of murder, according to a press release from the state police. He was hurt and was taken to the hospital. According to police, the 30-year-old Rio Rancho man will be booked into the Taos County Detention Centre upon his release.

The shooting occurred on Main Street in Red River around 5 p.m. on Saturday, according to police. Everyone involved was a member of an outlaw motorbike gang.

According to the US Department of Justice, these gangs are “organisations whose members use their motorbike clubs as conduits for criminal enterprises,” such as drug and weapon trafficking.

Another injured person, Christopher Garcia, 41, of Texas, was charged with cocaine possession and booked into the Taos County Detention Centre. Mathew Charles Jackson, 39, of Austin was also arrested after being charged with unlawful carrying of a firearm in a liquor establishment.

Authorities also stated that the remaining four injured individuals have not been charged with a crime. The scene is secure, according to police, and there is “no ongoing threat to public safety.”

According to ABC News, up to 28,000 bikers are expected to arrive in Red River this weekend for the 41st Annual Red River Memorial Day Motorcycle Rally, an annual event featuring live music.
