BERLIN (AP) — Berlin police say a member of a biker gang has been shot dead in the German capital.

Police said the 28-year-old member of a group calling itself Guerilla Nation suffered multiple gunshot wounds shortly after midday Friday.

The unnamed man was able to flee into a nearby motor repair shop before collapsing. Paramedics were unable to revive him.

Violence between rival biker gangs fighting over turf in the drugs, security and prostitution business has claimed several lives in Germany in recent years.
