OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine — Police in Maine say they are expecting hundreds of people to attend memorial services for a leader of the Outlaws motorcycle club who was killed during a shootout with federal agents.

A memorial visitation for Thomas Mayne is planned for Saturday at Cathedral Pines Funeral Home in Old Orchard Beach. The Portland Press Herald says a separate memorial service is planned for the Outlaws clubhouse in Dayton.

York County Sheriff Maurice Ouellette said he expects 250 to 300 members of the Outlaws to ride in for the service in Dayton.

Ouellette said he doesn’t expect any problems.

The 59-year-old Mayne was killed June 15 after agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives tried to arrest him in his home.
