Three men are dead and others are injured after a fight that ended in gunfire outside a motorcycle shop on Dorchester Road in North Charleston. Ronald Reid of Summerville is charged with murder. Police say he shot and killed Maurice Horry of Columbia.
Another man arrested for assault on Saturday is Barry Stinson. Police say he and others beat another man unconscious. The fight started inside the Cycle Gear Shop and spilled outside where some members of Real Kingz Motorcycle Club were waiting for Horry and his associate who are members of Wheels of Soul motorcycle club; it ended with several gun shots.
Was this personal beef that got out control or was it a fight between rival gangs? As far as the two clubs are concerned Police in North Charleston say they haven't had any trouble with Wheels of Soul Real Kings inside their jurisdiction.
Patrick McClafferty the owner of Wideopen Custom Shop in Ladson says members of such clubs make up about 30-percent of his business. He says the victim Maurice Horry used to be a customer of his. He says the clubs are numerous and this incident is giving them a bad name.
"Obviously you know everybody portrays them as gangs so it's kind of like they are not, they are a club like I said earlier. All the people can join ride together and have an extended family, so to have this kind issue is really weird."
Police are still investigating Saturday's incident and said over the weekend that more arrests are possible.
