Police ID man shot at Maine motorcycle club

TURNER, Maine — Maine State Police say a 67-year-old man underwent hours of surgery after being shot multiple times near the Saracens motorcycle clubhouse in Turner.

Authorities say Bertrand Binette dialed 911 Wednesday afternoon to report that he’d been shot near his home, which doubles as the motorcycle club’s home.

Steve McCausland of the Maine Public Safety Department says Binette was shot four times. McCausland says it was likely Binette would survive, but his condition wasn’t known.

McCausland declined to discuss the investigation. The motorcycle club touts its charity work but the Sun Journal newspaper says U.S. Department of Justice in 2001 described the club as an “outlaw motorcycle gang” affiliated with groups that distribute drugs.
