NASHVILLE -- A man wanted in a double murder at an Alabama motorcycle club was busted Thursday after police found him with a cache of weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition at a Tennessee home, authorities said.

Tyrone Johnson, 37, is the second suspect to be arrested in connection with the March 27 fatal shootings of two men in Huntsville, more than 100 miles south of his home in Nashville.

The deadly shooting was the culmination of an ongoing dispute between two notorious motorcycle gangs in the Huntsville area, police told local news outlets at the time.

At least four people were shot that day and two of them died, 45-year-old Kelcey Smith and 53-year-old Bernard Griffin.

The other suspect, 31-year-old Albert Vinson, was already in custody when investigators determined Johnson was also involved.

During a search of Johnson’s home on Thursday, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said they found 17 guns, thousands of rounds of ammo and gang paraphernalia.

He was expected to be extradited to Tennessee on Friday to face murder charges.

The investigation is ongoing.
