Moscow - Russian investigators have arrested a man suspected of killing five members of a motorbike club who had gathered in a village near Moscow.

Investigators said in a statement the victims were shot with a hunting rifle shortly after dawn on Sunday. Two women who were with them witnessed the killing in Chelokhovo, a village 100km southeast of Moscow.

The investigators said the 27-year-old suspect was arrested at his nearby home and confessed to shooting the bikers after a conflict.

They had spent the night near an abandoned building at a beer factory and reportedly planned to take part in a motorcycle ride on Monday in commemoration of Victory Day, when Russia celebrates the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II.
