Pagans Accused In Shooting

March 13, 2009

All Posts, News

March has been a cruel month for bikers in Pennsylvania. It got crueler last night when a civilian was killed at a roadhouse called the Longview Lounge on a road called Greensburg Pike a few miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

Previously this month in biker Pennsylvania, members of the Pagans Motorcycle Club, the Outlaws Motorcycle Club and the Warlocks Motorcycle Club brawled at the Philly Tattoo Arts Convention in the Sheraton Hotel in center city Philadelphia on March 1st.

Four days later the Commonwealth’s Bureau of Narcotics Investigation and Drug Control served sealed search warrants on a reported “half a dozen” properties associated with the Wilkes Barre Chapter of the Outlaws. Allegedly, some members of that club enjoy the recreational use of methamphetamine.

Wilkes Barre is one six Outlaws chapters in Pennsylvania. Traditionally, Pennsylvania has been home to one major motorcycle club, the Pagans. For many years, the Warlocks Motorcycle Club has co-existed with the Pagans in greater Philadelphia and the Breed Motorcycle Club has also had chapters in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Recently, published reports have indicated that some members of the Warlocks and the Breed have been patching over to the Outlaws.

Everybody feel free to read between the lines.

Still More

That very evening, March 5th, members of the Road Runners Motorcycle Club reportedly got into a bloody brawl with members of the Tenth and Oregon Avenues Benevolent Association. And, there is a certain history between the Tenth and O and some bikers in Philadelphia which may lend some hypothetical, dramatic context to this isolated, March 5th event.

Nine and a half years ago, an alleged associate of the Tenth and O was reported to have shot Steven “Gorilla” Mondevergine, a Pagans chapter President nine times. Mondevergine, as his road name suggests, is a robust man and he survived. And, a wild story subsequently circulated that a couple of years later Mondevergine shot down a Tenth and O associate in broad daylight on a South Philly street corner.

Last Night

Then last night, a man named Albert Kolano seems to have been in the wrong place at the wrong time in the wrong state in the wrong month. Kolano of Pittsburgh, 33 and the father of two, seems to have had nothing to do with motorcycle club politics.

Kolano reportedly went to the Longview Lounge with two friends to hear some music and have some drinks. According to multiple published reports he got into an altercation with “15 to 20” men wearing Pagans Motorcycle Club patches inside the bar.

Kolano called his brother and asked him to come to his aide. Someone at the bar also called the police. Reportedly, after his brother arrived, with no police in sight, “four to six Pagans” followed Kolano out of the bar when he tried to leave at about 1:30 am.

Former Cop

According to a report by Michael Hasch in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Kolano was confronted by 35-year-old Bryan Perun. Perun is alleged to be a member of the Pagans. He is also a former Pittsburgh police officer.

Perun was one of three Pittsburgh cops who killed a motorist in October 2001. The shooting was later ruled to be a justifiable homicide. Perun quit the police force in 2004.

Both Kolano and his brother made it out of the bar and got into their vehicles. According to the Tribune-Review, when Kolano’s brother tried to drive away Perun pulled a knife, stabbed a tire and said “You ain’t going nowhere.” Perun then pulled a gun and fired one shot into the ground and another shot at Kolano’s brother. Kolano’s brother was not hit.

As Kolano drove out of the parking lot he passed a Sport Utility Vehicle occupied by John Miller, 56; Nathaniel Robinson, 34, and Kevin Doolin, 43. All three are also reported to be members of the Pagans. Allegedly, Doolin fired two shots at Kolano.

Shot Dead

Kolano drove a short distance before drifting off the road and crashing into a tree. When police approached the vehicle they discovered that Kolano had been shot in the chest. He was taken to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and pronounced dead at 3:11 am.

Doolin, Miller, Robinson and Perun are all charged with conspiracy to commit homicide. Perun is also charged with aggravated assault.

    I feel for a N.W.O to work, patched bikers need to unite not kill each other. Lets not make it easier for our collective enemy!
    I love to see the day when all patched bikers, 1%ers and sanctioned clubs can create a coalition so we can better fight the injustices brought upon us. Remember “An Eye For an Eye” leaves the whole world blind.
    With Respect to all, especially my Pagan Brothers

    That man went to a bar and started trouble! If he didn’t do anything then what was he saying sorry for? He did not deserve to get killed nobody deserves that but he was not as innocent as he is being made out to be he looks like a crack head junkie but again nobody deserves to die that way. But I’ve followed this case from beginning found it interesting also interesting that this supposed witness was actually called to the bar to fight but that’s never said is it? Also that he has accused 3 different men including one of them after this man that’s on trial now? In my opinion this “witness” knows the man is innocent but does not care or he has no clue what is going on and is just pointing fingers at whoevers in the hot seat at the moment this whole case is a dog and pony show I personally would want the actual person that killed my loved one not just and joe I can accuse. In conclusion I don’t think anyone will be convicted of this crime the witness ruined that and after the currant man accused is found not guilty I’ll bet the story changes and the finger will be pointed at somebody else. And the next dog or pony will be on the stand all it takes to walk away from this is a good lawyer and a brain and from news paper info this man has a great lawyer and there is no way 12 jurors are going to say without a reasonable doubt (and a useless witness) that this man killed somebody

  5. trish Says:

    well Mr. cool,
    He bumped into one of the bikers on his way to the bathroom and said he was sorry. Just like a fucking pagan pig they thought he should die for it. Just know this, it not over till there is a eye for a eye and nothing short of that

  6. Mr.cool2000 Says:

    Well An eye for an eye wouldn’t make you any less of a pig now would it? If everyone sat down an examined this case or followed it like I have you’d see the truth in the evidence! There is no way this man will get convicted with the evidence they have or should I say don’t have. Good luck with your revenge mission but only god will be the one to pass judgment on you for killing an innocent man. Personally I would want justice on the real person responsible for this crime not just try to pin it on someone.

    Different subject and club, Pagans mess with everyone. My good friend suffering from cancer and on his last leg was taken by friends to the drag race in NY and there they were, Pagans who decided to give my good friend a verbal beating for sitting at a table this fat ass thought belonged to him. Totally unnecessary, I wish my friend was half the man he used to be cause he would of pounded that fat boy and pulled his pretty nice clean brand new patch he was wearing.

  13. Phuquehed Says:

    @GODS WARRIORS – Well, you’re not the same kind of entertainment that a couple of ex-federal pigs were, but for an illiterate fucktard you’re not doing too badly either.

  14. Ol'LadyRider Says:

    Just for giggles, I Googled Gods Warriors (with no apostrophe) and found a couple of event flyers and a FaceBook page that hasn’t been used since 2010. A lot of photos, but none of flare guns. Looks like the troll isn’t even creative enough to make up his own screen name, or steal one a bit more, ahem, realistic.

    Not to mention the flavor of those comments, and many others on this thread, smack of just one dumbass freak doing typical dumbass freak tricks.

    Much respect for you, Rebel, and for your remarkable tolerance.

    You guys are all sick in your head!!! All these bike gangs are evil, like all bullies, you attack people in numbers.. I real man stands on his own feet, independent! And puts all his energy into looking after his family and contributing to society, no selling drugs and causing destruction everywhere, we already have governments for that.

  21. Raven Says:

    Killing innocent people who’s kids need them so they don’t turn out like the likes of you.

  22. Phuquehed Says:

    Raven the retard speaks up using all his awesome knowledge and mind-reading abilities to prove to everyone that all clubs and club members sell drugs and do bad things to innocent people.

    Hey, Raven…doesn’t it bother you that you have to be taught daily how to walk and breathe simultaneously? Doesn’t it bother you that the dingleberries on my ass hairs have more intelligence than you’ve ever dreamed of having?

    Kill yourself and end your suffering.

  23. Louisiana Tiger Says:

    Why so much negativity these days. We need more charity events. Lets do something positive. And also what up with all the racist comments. It’s 2013, it’s time to let that racist stuff go. Don’t judge people by the color of there skin. Judge them by the content of there character.

  24. Rebel Says:

    Dear Louisiana Tiger,

    I completely applaud and appreciate your sentiments. Have you heard of the California prison system?

  25. JUSTICE FOR ALBERT KOLANO Says:

    RAVEN YOU GOT IT RIGHT. THEY ARE NOTHING BUT DRUG DEALERS & A BUNCH OF BASTARDS WHO DIDN’T HAVE FATHER’S TO TEACH THEM THE RIGHT WAY TO LIVE IN SOCIETY, TO WORK HARD FOR WHAT YOU HAVE NOT EASY LIKE SELLING DRUGS & BEING LOSERS. AND Phuqued YOUR A MORAN! PROBABLY VERY UN-EDUCATED BY THE WAY YOU TALK. ALL BIKERS CLUBS & PAGANS ARE & SHOULD GET REAL JOBS. AND STOP TAKING GOOD MEN WHO WORK FOR A LIVING AWAY FROM THERE FAMILY’S.

    ” Phuqued YOUR A MORAN! PROBABLY VERY UN-EDUCATED BY THE WAY YOU TALK.”

  30. Ray Jingbohner Says:

    For the part most of the PA MC 1% types are fairly laid back these days. I guess you could say they are growing up a bit. None of them want the attention brought on them. I’ve been around large groups of Pagans in some bars in the area and for the most part they are respectful, leave good tips for the bartenders and wait staff and come and go with little fanfare. I also think that some of the newer members are attracted to the title of what it is to be a 1% but don’t really want to live the life 24-7. I think it’s commercialized now due to TV Shows like SOA and such. I’m not saying there aren’t any bad apples and indicated in this sad story, but there are bad apples everywhere. Just my .02

I would love to beat you in the face and cut off your fucking heads and shit down your necks!!! Seriously, assholes!!! These are my sincere thoughts and would love to turn you over to the law if I knew who you were or are, COCKSUCKERS!!!!

  37. Polished3934 Says:

    Some of the comments about the clubs are just a bunch of bulllllllll. I grew up in PA back in the early 70″s. My girlfriends father was a Pagan….rest in peace Shankweiler!! I’ve been in their clubhouses and have been in the Warrlock’s Castle in Pa. Back in the day they would fight between the two gangs to protect their colors. If the other club came into a known Pagans bar…then they knew they were looking for trouble..Shit happened.. Today is a bunch of scary ass shit in my opinion!!!
    Yeah, I’ve known of some crazy things done…….but I also know a few personally and they also have done some great things and would help many. Most of them are businessmen today or retired by now. I remember a pool party at the Media INN. They were all in the pool having a fantastic time. My girlfriend and I hung out with them and swam and partied and didn’t feel threatened or scared at all. It was a happy fun time….no trouble at all happened!!! JUST SAYING
