Four Bandidos motorcycle gang members who 'murdered rival Hell's Angel with a SNIPER RIFLE' in front of his two sons are arrested 10 years after the assassination

Four members of the Bandidos motorcycle gang who murdered rival Hell's Angel member with a sniper rifle in front of his two young children were arrested ten years after his assassination, according to court documents.

Jesse James Benavides, Robert Romo, Norberto Serna and Johnny Romo were arrested and faced a San Antonio judge on Thursday on charges for the murder of Anthony Benesh in 2006.

Benesh was shot dead by a sniper nearly a decade ago, after the Bandidos motorcycle gang warned the 44-year-old against launching a rival Hell's Angels biker group in Austin, Texas.

Members of the extremely territorial gang had threatened Benesh against starting the chapter over fears it would lessen its power and move in on its territory.

However Benesh, who wore Hell's Angels colors on his jacket, proceeded against warnings and attempted to recruit members.

A law enforcement officer familiar with the rules of motorcycle clubs said to The Austin Chronicle that Benesh didn't seek the approval of Bandidos leadership when starting to start the chapter in Texas.

Texas is the home state of the Bandidos so a rival club would not sit well. The officer added: 'Oh, no. That would not go over well.'

Benesh was killed in a sniper attack as he was walking back to his car with his girlfriend and two sons outside a pizza restaurant on March 18, 2016.

All four of the men are facing a 12-count indictment, including one count of discharging a firearm during a murder in aid of racketeering.

Both Johnny and Robert Romo are also being charged with murder in aid of racketeering.

This isn't the first time the Bandidos have killed in the name of territory against a rival motorcycle gang.

The court documents accuse the Texas club of being 'at war' with biker rivals the Cossacks, which erupted in a shootout at a restaurant in Waco, Texas, back in 2015.

The two clubs had drew weapons at the Twin Peaks restaurant, and nine people were killed and 20 were injured during the rival biker brawl.
