Investigators spent hours at Bedsole’s home Tuesday night, trying to find the murder weapon. However, they had no luck.
Bedsole is facing murder charges over a dispute that officers say began over some motorcycles.
Eyewitness News was there when Besole was hauled off to the Seminole County jail. Police say he shot and killed Chad Brickey with the help of Holguy Loussant, a security guard who worked in the area of the bar when the dispute started.
The two arrests come after several days without leads.
“I feel a little relieved. You know, I still have mixed emotions. I am still pissed. I get sad,” Chad’s father, Kerry Brickey, said.
Investigators say the weekend murder was sparked when Brickey knocked over some motorcycles with his truck as he tried to leave Sharkey’s Pub in Apopka. Police believe, after Brickey knocked the bikes over, Bedsole jumped into Loussant’s truck and told him to follow Brickey. They followed him to a Mobile gas station on Orange Blossom Trail, where the shooting happened only minutes later.
“The Warlock gang member jumped out of the back of the pickup truck and shot our victim one time. The victim’s car crossed four lanes of traffic and ended up resting in the ditch,” said Steve Popp, Apopka Police Department.
Police say Bedsole is a Warlock motorcycle gang member.
“Mr. Bedsole was the Warlock gang member, who was actually the individual who fired the round that killed our victim, Mr. Brickey,” Popp said.
Loussant, the man who allegedly drove Bedsole to commit the crime, also faces murder charges and will face a judge sometime Wednesday. Officers say he’s charged with the crime because he knew what happened and did not come forward.
