Men charged with murder in motorcycle gang shootout due in court
SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. (WFTV) — Four men charged with homicide following a motorcycle gang shootout are expected to be in a Seminole County courtroom Wednesday afternoon.
David Maloney, Paul Smith, Robert Eckert and Victor Amaro are all charged with second-degree homicide and attempted homicide.
Investigators said the four opened fire on rival members of the Warlocks Motorcycle Club in 2012.
Three men were killed in the shootings.
The shootings happened during a fundraiser at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post in Winter Springs.
At the time of the incident, police said members of the Philadelphia Warlocks MC were holding a fundraiser at the VFW when members of the Orlando club showed up. They said six motorcyclists opened fire.
Police said said Harold “Lil’ Dave” Liddle and Peter “Hormone” Schlette were killed at the scene of the shooting. A third man, David "Dresser" Jakiela was shot in the head and died two days later.
The judge is expected to set a trial date for the four at Wednesday's hearing.
