The 44-year-old man killed in a weekend shooting in New Orleans is the same person a Danish motorcycle club has said disappeared during the group’s tour through the city, according to authorities and an Alabama TV report.

The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office on Tuesday (May 21) identified the man killed Saturday in the 4200 block of America Street as Poul Hansen. WKRG News 5 in Mobile reported Monday that the biker club from Denmark, Blood of Heroes, reached out to a local biker blog with concerns about Hansen’s whereabouts.

Henrick Larsen, from the club, told WKRG Hansen was last seen by his fellow members Friday on Bourbon Street and had apparently planned to go to a jazz concert. The Blood of Heroes group was in New Orleans as part of a “coast-to-coast tour” of the United States. According to WKRG, the club indicated Hansen was married and had two children.

The New Orleans Advocate, citing Danish media reports, said Hansen was shot near his hotel and his belongings were missing.
