Martin Bernatchez shot at campground/trailer park in Granby.

Martin BernatchezSûreté du Québec are reporting a shooting occurred around 2 a.m. Friday at the L’EstriVal campsite. Bernatchez, head of the Nomads chapter of the Hells Angels in Ontario was shot three times. The gunman escaped.

In mid-April, the vice president of the Nomads, Phil Boudreault, was also targeted by a gunman while riding his bike in Lachute. The number 2 was seriously injured with a punctured lung and a bullet fragment that had lodged near his spine.

A gunman approached Bernatchez after sneaking through a wooded area and spanning a creek in total darkness. Despite the serious injuries he sustained, Bernatchez is said to be "surprisingly well," said a source. The jacket with the colours of the Hells Angels Nomads that Bernatchez usually wears is bulletproof. It is not known if he was wearing it during the attack.

"Members in good standing arrested during the operation SharQc came out of prison", said a source. "It may be that they want to regain control of territory and they take this means to get there."

In late June, the brother of Martin Bernatchez, Marc, also a member of the Hells Angels Nomads, was arrested in Granby as part of a major police operation against a drug trafficking network.
