Maine AG: ATF agents justified in shooting biker.....

The Associated Press

OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine -- Maine's attorney general says federal agents were justified in shooting and killing a member of the Outlaws motorcycle club during a gunfight last summer.
Fifty-eight-year-old Thomas Mayne was killed June 15 when agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives tried to arrest him at his home in Old Orchard Beach.
He was one of 27 Outlaws members named in a federal indictment out of Virginia charging them with crimes ranging from attempted murder to racketeering.
In a report Tuesday, the Maine attorney general's office said the four officers who fired at Mayne won't face charges because they used deadly force in self-defense. The agents fired a total of 20 rounds, at least seven of which struck Mayne.
Mayne had fired six rounds.
