WARREN, Ohio (AP) — Police in northeastern Ohio have shut down a motorcycle club after its leader was charged in the shooting deaths of two bikers from a rival club.
Law-enforcement officers in Warren used a battering ram to knock down a door Friday at the clubhouse of the Forever Two Wheels motorcycle club.
The organization’s president, 45-year-old David Bailes Jr., was charged with murder in the shooting deaths of two members of the Brothers Regime a week ago.
Bailes was wounded in the shootout outside a bar in Warren Township. Court records don’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
