OSP searching for Warren Township shooting suspect

Posted: Updated:

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said they are searching by air, and police are searching on ground for a possible suspect in a Warren Township shooting.

The shooting happened a little before 12:30 this afternoon and left two dead and at least three with gunshot wounds. One person was taken to Cleveland Metro.

Officials say the shooting broke out between two local biker gangs — FTW and Brother's Regime — in the parking lot of Shorty's Bar off Highland Avenue. They say that one of the groups was at the bar planning the route for their Father's Day Poker Run.

Three BCI vehicles are on the scene, and several other agencies are still on the scene and investigating the incident.

Police have confiscated several guns.

Officials say that this is a very in depth investigation. Names of the victims have not yet been released.

Shorty's Bar has been in business for 60 years. Neighbors say that there haven't been problems at the bar in the 27 years that they've lived there.
