I.R.E. rider shot last night

I.R.E. Mike Pee /

Mark, who is the guy who houses most of our mopeds, and hosts our fix it days/meetings, got shot last night. He is in critical but stable condition right now. Just before 1am he was riding and someone stopped him. They told him to give him his Ciao, and he said no. The proceeded to shoot him in the stomach. The details are fuzzy from there, but as far as we know he has had two surgeries and is still critical but stable.

Some of you met Mark at the KC rally this year. Others met him while stopping through St. Louis at random times. He is the major benefactor to our group, and is one of my best friends.

If you're the praying type, please keep him in your prayers. If not, please just hope for his speedy recovery.

OH SHIT! I hope he pulls through and whoever shot him gets struck down. this is tragic.

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night

I never understood the logic behind robbing someone for a moped. They're not worth much, and they're hard to sell without drawing big time attention.

I'm not the praying type, but I have my fingers crossed for Mark.

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night

I could possibly see mark getting hostile with the thief, You guys need to be careful in st. louis

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night

Mike, any word from the police?

I don't know much other than what I said before. The police towed his ciao home, but I don't know if they have any leads on the shooter. I know they were in his house around 2:30am last night. No one knew why for sure, but a couple ideas were that they were looking for family contact info, or that they were just checking the place over to make sure no one was there. He didn't get shot at the fort. He was out riding a bit away from there.

I'll keep the thread updated with anything we find out, but it's all pretty vague right now.

jesus!

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night

Hey Mike is there anything we an do for Mark? Let me know! We are all thinking of him.

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night

That's unbelievable! I wouldn't shoot someone for a Ciao. Maybe a nice Bravo, but come on, a Ciao?!

Seriously, that's awful. How can we help?

I.R.E. rider shot last night

Wow, just wow. I'm thinking of him and you guys. Hang in there.

Hey Chuck. We're all kinda lost on what we can do for him ourselves. Neighbors are watching the fort and feeding his dog and cat. I don't know how our group is going to function for now, nor how Sioux Falls will work out. For now we're just hanging in there, waiting for more info.

That is unbelievable. My faith in humanity has seriously been taken down quite a few notches.

I hope he pulls through and the fucker that did that to him gets his fucking nuts shot off at point blank range.

If there is anything we can do, please post or email.

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night

Fucking terrible! I'm thinkin of him for sure.

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night

this shit is ridiculous.

I.R.E. rider shot last night

Unfrickenbelievable. I'm really pulling for Mark and I hope they catch the scumbag that did this. That way that piece of trash can spend the rest of his life getting raped in prison.

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night

That's terrible! I hope he heals quickly. May the fist of justice find and take down the d-bag who shot him.

Get better soon, Mark!

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night

holy shit.. many wishes for a speedy recovery.

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night

The cops probably were thinking there is a motive beyond moped theft. Or maybe they wanted to see if he was in the drug bizz whe they entered his house

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night

He is in my thoughts and prayers. Let us know how he is doing.

damn..damn...damn. That is unbelievable! As always, losing faith in humanity...one person at a time.

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night

Re: I.R.E. rider shot last night
