The Mississippi Analysis and Information Center, which is a federally funded fusion center, issued a “situational awareness” bulletin this morning that describes the Iron Order Motorcycle Club as an “Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.”
The bulletin reads:
“On Saturday night February 28, 2015, a confrontation occurred at the Echo bar in Meridian, Mississippi involving the Bandidos OMG, the Pistoleros and the Iron Order.
“The fight ended up in a nearby parking lot where three bikers were shot and one of the bikers ended up in critical condition. The Iron Order is a three piece patch MC and claim not to be a 1% club, and allow law enforcement as members,
“No arrests have been made at this time and the investigation is still ongoing. Law enforcement should be aware of the possibility of further violence between these gangs, and should remain alert if and when contact is made with any members.”
“This information should be considered UNCLASSIFIED/FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY. Further distribution of this document is restricted to law enforcement and intelligence agencies only unless prior approval from the Mississippi Analysis and Information Center is obtained.
