motorcyclist possibly shot while riding

GLENDALE -- A connector road linking the Foothill and Glendale freeways is closed this morning after a motorcyclist was killed -- possibly due to a shooting, authorities said.

Shots were fired around 2 a.m. as the man was riding his motorcycle on the connector road linking the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway to the southbound Glendale (2) Freeway, said Sgt. Tom Lorenz of the Glendale Police Department.

Firefighters and California Highway Patrol officers at the scene discovered the motorcycle in bushes alongside the road and its deceased rider nearby.

Investigators initially reported that the man had been shot, however, Glendale Police later said they were not sure if he suffered a gunshot wound.

They're investigating the possibility that someone fired shots at the man, causing him to crash his motorcycle.

Also at the scene was a shirtless motorcyclist with a large tattoo on his back that said "Mongols" -- likely referring to the Mongols Motorcycle Club, a motorcycle gang founded in Montebello in the 1970s.

He was seen talking to officers, however, it was not immediately known what connection -- if any -- had had to the incident.

CHP Officer David Porter said the connector roads linking the 210 and 2 freeways would be shut down, along with the Foothill Boulevard onramp to the southbound 2, until at least 8 a.m.

The northbound 2 Freeway was closed at Mountain Street until 5:30 a.m., when the lanes were reopened, said CHP Officer Anthony Martin.

No arrests have been reported.
