WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. —

A man charged in the deadly Warlocks Motorcycle Club shooting in Winter Springs was denied bond on Wednesday.

David “Tinman” Maloney, 52, is accused of shooting and killing three men at a Veterans of Foreign Wars post on Sept. 30.

Maloney had asked a judge to release him on bond because he acted in self-defense, but the judge denied the request, WFTV learned.

Police said the Philadelphia Warlocks MC members were meeting for a charity poker run at the VFW along Edgemon Avenue, and the gunfire started when the unaffiliated Orlando Warlocks MC showed up.

David "Dresser" Jakiela was shot in the head and killed.  The other victims were identified as Harold Liddle and Peter “Hormone” Schlette.

Investigators said they recovered a total of 36 weapons from that shootout, including guns, knives and other weapons.

“We recovered 13 firearms and 23 edged weapons,” said Lt. Doug Seely.

Along with Maloney, police arrested Victor “Pancho” Amaro, 41, Robert “Willy” Eckert, 38, and Paul Smith, 47.

According to police, each of the men is charged with two counts of second-degree homicide and one count of attempted homicide.
