Ohio motorcycle club targeted, shot Erie bikers

Four members of an Ohio motorcycle club drove to Erie, searched for members of a local bike club and shot the first two they saw, police said.

The victims -- Erie men aged 38 and 44 -- have not been identified. One was shot in the torso, police said. The other was shot in the foot.

Both are expected to survive, police said.

The men were shot at 2:07 a.m. Saturday as they rode in the 100 block of East 11th Street. They were near but not at the Gem City Lodge, where earlier reports said the shootings occurred.

The lodge was closed at the time.

Two men were arrested. Tyrone H. Green, 39, of Akron, Ohio, was charged with aggravated assault. Marice L. Barnes, 34, also of Akron, was charged with possession of a prohibited weapon -- a blackjack police say they found in his back pocket -- and conspiracy to commit aggravated assault.

Both men are being held in the Erie County Prison.

Police have issued arrest warrants for two other men:
