Shooting survivor testifies in Warlocks murder trial (video)

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —Testimony resumed on Thursday in the murder trial for Warlocks motorcycle club member David Maloney.

Maloney is charged with three counts of murder for the deaths of David Jakiela, Harold Liddle and Peter Schlette in 2012. He is also charged with two counts of attempted murder.

A man who rode into what the prosecution is calling an ambush testified on Thursday morning about his scramble to stay alive.

Brad Dyess said he and four other Florida Warlocks rode into the Winter Springs VFW and almost immediately there was trouble with a rival group called Philly Warlocks.

According to Dyess, what started as yelling for them to leave, quickly turned violent.

"He threw his hands in the air and yelled something to the affect of 'You shot me,' then I saw Paul point a gun in his face and shoot him," said Dyess.

Dyess said he always carries guns and quickly pulled one.

"I fired two more shots to keep me from being shot at and give me a chance to get over the wall," he said.

Dyess says as he was running he saw Maloney come out of the VFW with a pistol in his hand.

"I saw him come out the door and pull a pistol and he dove behind a truck over there," said Dyess.

The defense showed a large knife in court saying it was carried by one of the men who was killed.

The defense said Maloney was inside when the shooting started, and by the time he was outside with a gun any shots he fired were in self-defense.

Maloney is the first of four defendants to go on trial. All of the defendants will be tried separately
