CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Police have identified the victim of a shootout that occurred over the weekend between police and the Iron Horsemen motorcycle club.

Harry Walter Seavey Jr., 51, was shot Saturday night outside JD's Honky Tonk and Emporium on Spring Grove Avenue.

An attorney for the Iron Horsemen told FOX19 that Seavey was guarding the door because there was tension rising between the Iron Horsemen and another motorcycle club, the Detroit Highwaymen.

Police say when two undercover officers arrived at the scene for an investigation, Seavey opened fire.

The officers were injured, but have since been released from the hospital and are recovering at home. Another person also suffered non-life threatening injuries.
