3 suspects in biker shootout in Warren Twp. face murder charges

Bailes, Dellapenna and Gardner are facing charges related to the June 2016 shooting at Shorty’s bar

David Bailes & Charles Dellapenna, III, charged with murder in a Warren Twp. Biker shootout.

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Three men are facing murder charges relating to a shootout between two rival biker groups in Warren Township.

David Bailes, Jr. and Charles Dellapenna, III, are charged with the murder of Jason Moore and Robert Marto. They’re also charged with injuring Walter Hughes and Andrew Claypool, according to a secret indictment that was unsealed Thursday.

James Gardner was also indicted on Wednesday, facing charges for the killings.

Bailes, the president of the FTW (Forever Two Wheelz) biker gang, was originally charged with two counts of murder in connection with the June 2016 shooting at Shorty’s bar in Warren, but those charges were dropped in September. He was also shot during the shooting.

He and Dellapenna were in Trumbull County Court of Common Pleas on Thursday for the charges.

The city closed FTW’s clubhouse, located on Chestnut Avenue, in July, declaring it a public nuisance and saying it was the scene of criminal activity.

The man police say killed a man during a biker shootout over the summer was in court on Wednesday.
