NORTH BERGEN, NJ (1010 WINS) -- Newark cops say a man wearing Pagans Motorcycle Club clothing fired a gun Wednesday morning.

They're not sure who he was shooting at, but nobody was hurt.

Cops say the suspect, 28-year-old Larry Ortiz of North Bergen, took off on his motorcycle and eventually crashed in Elizabeth.

He was arrested on gun possession charges and taken to the hospital. Ortiz was listed in stable condition.

New Jersey State Police say the Pagans have been trying to expand their territory in northern New Jersey. The club already has a heavy presence in south Jersey.

NJ Advance media says state police passed that guidance after an Edison man was accused of attacking a Hell's Angels associate in Newark.
