Bikers from around the country are expected to attend Bandidos chapter president Juan Martinez's vigil and rosary Friday night.

The service is at St. Francis Xavier Mother Cabrini Catholic Church at 12200 Vista Del Sol Drive.

Bikers from the Bandidos and other local groups started showing up around 5:45 p.m. Friday.

Martinez and three others were shot on July 30 at Mulligan's Chopped Hog bar. Martinez later died from his injuries.

El Paso police and other agencies arrested 34-year-old Javier Gonzalez in connection with the shooting. Gonzalez is reportedly a member of the Kinfolk Motorcycle Club, a reported rival of the Bandidos.

Just as the rosary was ending, police made the announcement that Gonzalez was rebooked and charged with murder and that a second arrest had been made. Manuel Gallegos, 58, was arrested Thursday and charged with assault/engaging in organized criminal activity for his role in the shooting.

The funeral mass for Martinez will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Marks Catholic Church.
