A Fredericton shooting victim left Bacchus Motorcycle Club a year before his death, aiming to spend more time with his two teenage sons.
But his family says Donnie Robichaud’s biker past is not connected to the shooting that took his life.Donnie, 42, one of four victims of the shootings Friday, was a full-patch member of the New Brunswick-founded Bacchus Motorcycle Club before he left it about a year ago.
Police have described the club as an outlaw motorcycle gang. It has also been described by investigators as the Switzerland of motorcycle clubs for its ability to get along with others,including Hells Angels In his obituary photo, Donnie is smiling, standing in front of a motorcycle and wearing a jacket with a patch declaring him a “Bacchus supporter.”
The men in that club would become his brothers, according to Melissa, even after he left it behind.Police have yet to find any personal link between Donnie — or any of the other three victims of Friday’s shootings — and the alleged gunman, 48-year-old Matthew Vincent Raymond.
