    Flowers and balloons were left outside the Black Sabbath Motorcycle Club's Mother House in honor of Clyde Thompson.

    Days after the popular president of a motorcycle club was shot and killed, another motorcycle club member thinks somebody is targeting bikers in the Mt. Hope area.

    “I think somebody has a vendetta against somebody here and they’re taking it out on anybody on a bike. Right now, it’s not making any sense at all,” said the motorcycle club member, who didn’t want to be identified.

    Days after the popular president of a motorcycle club was shot and killed, another motorcycle club member thinks somebody is targeting bikers in the Mt. Hope area. NBC 7's Artie Ojeda reports.

    His words come after the president of the Black Sabbath Motorcycle Club was shot and killed in a drive-by incident Friday night.

    Multiple shots were fired, killing Clyde Major Thompson, Jr. , 51, best known by his motorcycling nickname, “Wild Dogg.”

    The president of the San Diego chapter of the Mighty Black Sabbath Motorcycle Club Nation was gunned down and killed in Mt. Hope Friday night. NBC 7's Elena Gomez speaks to those who knew the club leader.

    The shooting occurred just before 11 p.m. outside of the headquarters of the club on the 4800 block of Market Street.

    “I’m paranoid because it could have been anybody. I’m in fear for myself and other bikers that come around here,” the motorcycle club member said.

    The club member said Friday’s shooting happened two days after another shooting incident at the same location. He said another club member was taking trash to a dumpster when someone fired at him. He was not hit. As of Monday afternoon, San Diego police had not returned phone calls to confirm the other shooting.

    The club member says he has no idea why they would be targeted or who would be responsible. He says they’ve been in contact with local gang members who said they were not responsible.

    Police have not released specifics of the shooting or information surrounding suspects.
