A motorcycle rally in Florida erupted into violence last weekend when leaders of the Outlaws and the Kingsmen biker gangs shot it out at a gas station. The Outlaws Ocala, Florida chapter boss Marc (Not Quite) Knotts and the Kingsmen Lake County, Florida chapter vice president David (Gutter) Donovan were both shot three times in the gunfight late Saturday night at a Circle K refill depot down the road from the tail-end of the annual Leesburg, Florida Bikerfest and were admitted to a local hospital for treatment.

The Outlaws are based out of the Midwest, but has long maintained a stronghold along the Florida panhandle. The Kingsmen were founded in New York and are a recent addition to the underworld biker landscape. The club took a major federal racketeering and murder bust last spring out of Buffalo. Kingsmen national president David (Big Dave) Pirk resides in Florida and is the indictment’s headlining defendant.

The 48 year old Knotts, originally from West Virginia, is sometimes called “Knothead” or “NQ” and was wounded in the groin during the shootout. Gutter Donovan, 40, was struck in the back. The Leesburg Bikerfest drew over 200,000 people this year.

Just last month, Florida Outlaw Christopher (Louie the Lip) Keating was stabbed to death in a bar brawl in Daytona Beach. Keating had been fighting with a member of the Pagan’s, a biker gang headquartered out of Pennsylvania.
