Police say three people have been arrested in connection to the death of a Bronx motorcycle club leader who died in a shooting back in May. 
Video released by NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison shows two masked men get out of a blue SUV with guns in their hands as two other people are crossing the street. 
Seconds later, the video shows the masked men chase one of the other men, and then shoot him before running off. 
Police believe that the man shot in the video is 51-year-old Francisco Rosado. 
The three suspects in custody are now facing multiple charges, including murder. 
Police say 58-year-old Frank Tatulli, 27-year-old Anthony Destefano, and a man from Queens were taken into custody. 
All three are charged with murder, manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon. 
The shooting happened on Holland Avenue. Police say Rosado died after being shot in the head and torso. 
News 12 is told Rosado was the head of the Bronx chapter of the Pagan’s Motorcycle Club. 
According to the New York Post, two of the men in custody are high-ranking members of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. 
The New York Post also reported that the shooting may have been a result of a turf beef after the rival club moved into the area. 
A source also tells News 12 that the Hells Angels Clubhouse was raided Tuesday, but that it is unclear if it is related to the shooting at this time.
