Liberty motorcycle club victim arrested in similar May incident
Mon, 29 Oct 2012 20:43:39 GMT —
The man arrested in a Saturday shooting at a Liberty motorcycle club is now charged with two counts of attempted-first degree murder.
One of the victims in the weekend shooting was also arrested in May in connection to a robbery related to the motorcycle clubs.
Michaelangelo Gomez was in court Monday morning for an initial appearance related to the weekend incident at the Midwest Percenters Clubhouse on Main Street in Liberty.
Gomez is charged two counts of attempted murder, two counts of aggravated battery with a firearm and aggravated discharge of a firearm.
A judge set his bond at $500,000.
Gomez is due back in court at 10 a.m. Thursday.
A document filed by the Adams County State's Attorney revealed the names of the two victims. They are Robert Morrell of Hannibal and Timothy Jackson of Roodhouse. Barnard said that neither of the two men are being investigated in connection with the weekend incident.
In an interview Monday, Morrell's mother, Brenda Morrell, also of Hannibal, said that her son was released from the hosptial and is recovering.
"He's doing OK, but he's sore," she said.
Police said this weekend that their injuries were not life threatening.
Jackson was charged in May along with three other men in connection with an armed robbery.
Jackson is scheduled for a court hearing in December on those charges filed in May.
