STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – A reputed Hells Angels motorcycle club member from Staten Island has admitted to shooting a rival biker in an attack outside a Virginia motel five months ago.
Dominick J. Eadicicco pleaded guilty Tuesday in Augusta County Circuit Court to malicious wounding by a mob and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, stemming from the Sept. 10 ambush outside the Hometown Inn near Greenville, said Augusta County Commonwealth’s Attorney Tim Martin.
The defendant was sentenced to eight years in prison.
Eadicicco, 49, was among seven Hells Angels bikers arrested following the assault of two members of the Pagans Motorcycle Club around 3 a.m.
He and a co-defendant, Anthony Milan, 28, of East Elmhurst, Queens, shot one victim who attempted to flee from the larger Hells Angels group, said authorities.
That man survived the shooting, while a second victim was beaten with a hammer, authorities said.
Martin said the shooting victim was uncooperative.
Last month, Milan pleaded guilty to the identical charges as Eadicicco and also was sentenced to eight years behind bars.
Three other defendants from the New York-New Jersey metro area pleaded guilty last month to malicious wounding by a mob and were sentenced to four years in prison, Martin said.
The two other club members were charged with lesser crimes, he said.
