The Pagan Motorcycle Club has more than 1,300 members across at least 100 chapters in several states along the East Coast.
The gang has been linked to the production and smuggling of illicit drugs including meth, cocaine, heroin and PCP and is also believed to have deep ties to organized crime.
The Pagans are one of four major outlaw motorcycle gangs in the US - with rivals being the Hells Angels, the Bandidos and the Outlaws.
Rosado's murder has sparked fears among law enforcement that a gang war could be brewing, should his assailants be linked to a rival group.
Law enforcement officials have speculated that the hit could be linked to the Pagans' aggressive expansion efforts in New Jersey, where the bike gang now has 17 clubs, or its long-standing feud with Hells Angels, reported Bronx Justice News.
The Angels had recently moved their headquarters from Manhattan to The Bronx, which traditionally has been the Pagans' sphere of influence.

The new Hells Angels headquarters in The Bronx was hit by a hail of bullets on Thursday night. No one was injured, and police have not yet made any arrests
On January 2, the Angels' clubhouse in the Throggs Neck section of The Bronx was shot up by multiple gunmen on motorcycles, who have not been arrested to this day.
The building sustained some damage after being hit by more than a dozen bullets, but no injuries were reported.
The Hell's Angels are easily the world's most famous biker gangs with an estimated 2,500 members. Many members have a hand in criminal enterprises ranging from drug running and production to racketeering.
They are notoriously aggressive when defending their turf and have long-simmering feuds with many other clubs including the Pagans, Outlaws and Bandidos.
The Pagan's, who exclude black members, are widely believed to have ties to the Aryan Brotherhood and the Italian Mafia.
They were formed in the 1950s but reportedly didn'y enter the criminal underworld until John 'Satan' Marron took control in the late 60s and 70s. They have since grown to become one of big four motorbike gangs in the US. They're implictaed in producing and selling drugs, as well as working as arms dealers and bombing plots.
The gang has a long rivalry with the Hell's Angels and Complex reported that in 2010, 19 members of the group were arrested in New York for allegedly plotting to bomb Hells Angels.
Another rival, Bandidos Motorcycle Club, began in the South focusing on smuggling drugs across the Mexican border into the US. They were also involved in the Waco gun battle. They are rumored to have around 5,000 members worldwide. While their strongest base is in the South, they also have chapters on the East Coast, including New York.
The last of the Big Four are the Outlaws. Founded in 1936, they're believed to be the world's oldest outlaw motorcycle club and the Hell's Angels fiercest rivals.
