LORAIN — A crowd of onlookers gathered after a series of shots fired hit three men outside Familia Bar and Grill on Sunday afternoon.

According to a statement from Lorain police, officers were dispatched to the 1600 block of East 28th Street in response to the shooting about 2 p.m. Police found three men with gunshot wounds identified as Steven McCune, 36, of Lorain and Roy Super, 57, and Theodore McKenzie, 52, both of Cleveland. All three shooting victims were taken to Mercy Medical Center and then flown to trauma centers in Cleveland. Their condition is not being released at this time, police said.

A vehicle allegedly involved in the incident was stopped by Lorain police shortly after the shooting and two men, Hunter Horne, 22, and Jarrod Johnson, 40, both of Cleveland, were taken into custody. Several weapons were confiscated, as well as other evidence, including shell casings.

Horne and Johnson have been charged with attempted murder, aggravated robbery, felonious assault and complicity, and are due in Lorain Municipal Court today. Charges are pending on Super and McKenzie upon their recovery.

Multiple eyewitnesses said they heard a series of shots in the area, ranging from 7 to 30 shots heard.

The bar is home to the Familia Ryderz, a local Lorain motorcycle club.

Edwin Ruiz said he was at the bar when he heard multiple gunshots. He looked outside and saw a driver who might have been involved in the shooting put a mask on and leave. Another man who had a gun in his hand was visibly shaken as he approached the bar.

After calming him down and persuading the man to lower his gun, Ruiz said, he let the man in and called 911. Ruiz saw the man was injured and was bleeding after he removed his shirt. Ruiz said the police arrived within minutes.

Lorain police encourage anyone with information about this incident to call the Detective Bureau at (440) 204-2105.
