Dave Jakiela Dead: Warlocks Motorcycle Club Member Dies After VFW Charity Ride Shooting

Posted: Updated:

WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. -- All three members of a motorcycle club who were shot outside a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in central Florida have died.

Winter Springs police reported that Dave Jakiela died Tuesday, two days after being hospitalized. He was shot Sunday morning as members of a chapter of the Warlocks motorcycle club were meeting at the VFW for a charity ride. Also killed in the gunfire were Harold Liddle and Peter Schlette.

The gunfire erupted after other bikers showed up, Winter Springs police reported. Police officers responded and confiscated multiple weapons.

Victor Amaro, Robert Eckert, David Maloney and Paul Smith were each charged with two counts of homicide and one count of attempted homicide. Police expect to upgrade the attempted homicide in light of the third death. All four men were being held without bail.

Members of the Pennsylvania Warlocks motorcycle club came to Florida to establish a chapter in Seminole County earlier this year but are not associated with the Florida Warlocks. According to records, the four men who were charged in the shooting are associated with the Pennsylvania club.

The FBI and DEA are assisting Winter Springs Police in the investigation. They are all still trying to determine a motive.
