The ATF office in Boston said Tuesday’s incident in Maine in which ATF agents shot and killed a biker who was named in a 27-person federal indictment is under review.

“The shooting’s under review,” James McNally, a spokesman for the ATF office in Boston told the Boston Globe, adding that it was the only fatal shooting by New England-based agents of the bureau in his memory. “There will be a thorough review.”

ATF agents rounding up more than two dozen members of the American Outlaw Association motorcycle gang in a seven-state sweep, killed Thomas “Tomcat” Mayne, 59, the regional treasurer of the group, in a shoot out just south of Portland, Me., authorities said.

Michael Campbell, a spokesman for ATF in Washington, told ticklethewire.com on Tuesday that agents went to the home in the beachside community of Sandy Circle around 6 a.m. to arrest gang members Mayne and Kenneth Chretian, when they were met by gunfire.

Agents returned fire and shot and killed Mayne, who was wanted on a federal warrant, Campbell said. Chretian, who was wanted on a state warrant, was taken into custody, Campbell said.

The gang is a rival of the Hells Angels, authorities said.
