A man killed inside the Hells Angel’s Motorcycle Club was, at least at one point, a member of a rival group.
In 2001, William J. Furlong was one of 14 members of the Sons of Silence indicted in federal court for dealing drugs out of central Iowa.
He was released from prison in November 2010.
Furlong’s body was found Sunday inside the club, at 501 S. 27th Circle.
Emergency dispatchers received a “nature unknown” call around 10:45 a.m. for the area of 27th and J Streets.
Police have not said how Furlong, 48, was killed.
Furlong’s death came during a violent weekend in Omaha that left another person dead and two others wounded.
As of Monday, the city’s homicides were at 23 for the year.
That compares with 18 by mid-July of 2012 — a year that ended with 40 homicides.
All violent crimes are up 6 percent over this time last year, Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said last week during a speech. But overall, crime is down 1 percent.
