Florida Woman Dies After Highway Motorcycle Gang Shootout On I-4

The woman who was struck with a bullet in the Friday motorcycle gang shootout on I-4 near in Polk County has died, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Grady Judd said Friday during a press briefing, it started as a physical fight when two groups of rival bikers, the Thug Riders Motorcycle Club and the Sin City Deciples Motorcycle Club then passed each other on I-4.

“There was some skirmishing and some driving about 100 mph,” which is when Donovan shot at one of the Thug Riders said Judd on Friday.

Ronald Donovan, a member of the Sin City Deciples, 38, of Cocoa, Florida, fired a gun at a Thug Riders member, who fired back toward Donovan.

Judd said on Friday that the bullet hit the woman in the head plunging her from the motorcycle. The woman was transported to a local hospital in what Judd described as ‘mortally wounded”. She died Saturday.

“Ronald had two empty gun holsters when he was taken into custody, but there were no firearms around. Just as deputies were arriving, they saw a motorcycle leave the scene and we suspect the person on that motorcycle may have the gang colors and the firearms,” said Judd.

Ronald Donovan was arrested and charged with:

  • 2 Counts – Battery on an officer
  • 2 – Counts – Resisting arrest with violence
  • Second-degree felony murder
  • Attempted first-degree murder on the 36-year-old man he shot
  • Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
