1 dead, 2 wounded in Columbus motorcycle club shooting


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — One man was killed and two others were wounded in a shooting at a motorcycle club in Ohio over the weekend, authorities said.

Columbus police said the gunfire was reported shortly after 3:30 a.m. Saturday at Toros Motorcycle Club in South Linden.

Police said one man was found deceased. His name hasn’t been released pending confirmation of his identity. Two other men aged 29 and 33 were treated at hospitals for gunshot wounds and are expected to recover, police said.

No arrests were immediately announced. Anyone with information was asked to call homicide investigators.

In June 2019, five people were shot at the club when it was at a different location in North Linden. Police said at the time that the shooting apparently involved retribution by a nonmember who had been thrown out.

Police told The Columbus Dispatch after that shooting that they monitor 10 to 15 motorcycle groups based on criminal activity, a small number of the overall clubs in the city. They said they do not consider the Toros club dangerous.
