RENO, Nev. — A judge in Reno has set an Oct. 29 trial for three California men charged in the killing of a Hells Angels boss in a shootout at a Nevada casino.
All three men appeared together in a heavily guarded courtroom Friday — one Hells Angel in a grey, pinstripe suit and two members of the rival Vagos gang in jail jump suits, shackles and bulletproof vests.
Gary Rudnick, a Los Angeles Vagos, pleaded not guilty to two charges tied to the September killing of the president of the Hells Angels' San Jose chapter.
The other Vagos, Ernesto Gonzalez of San Francisco, is accused of firing the fatal shots. Both were indicted along with Hells Angels member Cesar Villagrana on a charge of challenge to fight resulting in death.
