Veterans shot while riding motorcycles

Harris County, Texas (April 14, 2019) — Three Marine veterans riding motorcycles in west Harris County were shot at early Saturday morning, Harris County deputies said. Two of them were hit but are expected to survive.


This happened in the 3800 block of Barkers Crossing. The Marines told deputies that a gold SUV started following them as they were on their way home. The SUV allegedly hit one of the Marines and knocked him off his bike and then ran over another. After that, deputies said several people in the SUV jumped out and started shooting at the Marines.

According to investigators, it appears there was no contact between the Marines and the people in the SUV before the shooting.


The third Marine, who was not hit, is being questioned by deputies. No arrests have been made.

Temecula Bike Blessing a hit

Temecula, California (April 13, 2019) — A week before Easter, motorcyclists flocked Saturday, April 13, to Temecula Harley-Davidson — and then to a priest waiting to bless their vehicles. It was the second annual Temecula Bike Blessing, created to smash stereotypes about bikers.

The blessing aimed to show, the event’s website states, “that bikers are normal people — sons, fathers, husbands, etc. — who have a common goal and respect for one another and the cities that they live in.” 

Motorcyclists rode from the dealership to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4089, where a priest blessed the motorcycles as they came into the driveway. The event, a VFW fundraiser, also included food and activities for children.
