The Associated Press: Biker killed in Maine in shootout with ATF agents

The Associated Press: Biker killed in Maine in shootout with ATF agents: "Federal agents attempting to arrest two members of the Outlaws motorcycle gang as part of a seven-state sweep shot and killed one of them in an early morning gunfight Tuesday.
More than two dozen Outlaws members across the country were charged Tuesday in Virginia with participating in a criminal enterprise.
A SWAT team from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was fired upon at about 6 a.m. while attempting to arrest Thomas 'Tomcat' Mayne, 59, the regional treasurer for the Outlaws, along with Kenneth Chretian, according to ATF spokesman Michael Campbell.
Mayne was killed. Two women also were in the house, but nobody else was injured in the shootout, according to the attorney general's office.
The SWAT team was used because the ATF viewed the suspects as being part of a 'violent criminal enterprise,' said Glenn N. Anderson, ATF special agent in charge of the Boston office. He said the agents were fired at when they arrived.
Authorities found a shotgun and a handgun inside the house after the shooting."
