(NECN: Amy Sinclair, Old Orchard Beach, Maine) - New details are emerging following the shootout between a reputed Outlaws biker and federal agents that left the biker, 58-year-old Thomas "Tomkat" Mayne dead.

Meanwhile, in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, where the shooting went down, police are keeping an eye out for revenge seekers.

Plain clothes officers were back in the neighborhood that less than 24 hours ago was crawling with federal agents.

The owner of Jim's Auto Parts says he was very surprised to learn that his neighbor was a ranking member of the notorious Outlaws motorcycle gang.

Mayne and another man, Michael "Madman" Pedini were indicted in connection with the near fatal shooting a Hells Angel biker up in Canaan last year.

When agents attempted to serve Mayne with a warrant at Sandy Circle yesterday, they say Mayne fired first from inside the window. Mayne was killed instantly -- his brother-in-law, Ken Chretien is now behind bars.

According to the affidavit, Chretien did not go down easily, either. Agents said they had to file non-lethal baton rounds when he rushed them. When that failed to slow him down, they fired a Taser gun twice before they could get him on the ground to handcuff him.

In all, 27 ranking members of the Outlaws gang were targeted in the indictment. The charges against them include attempted murder, kidnapping, drug trafficking, gambling and weapons violations.
