Closing statements are expected Thursday in the trial of Gregory Kincade, accused of fatally shooting a Pontiac man and injuring another by gunfire during a 2019 motorcycle club party.
Mecca Shea Ramsey, 41, was found dead April 27, 2019 in the men’s restroom at the Night Riders Motorcycle Club, 339 Raeburn Street in Pontiac. He had been shot multiple times, mostly in the back, according to the Oakland County Medical Examiner. The other shooting victim. Malcolm Chambers, sustained a bullet wound to the arm and a grazing wound to the forehead.
On Wednesday in Oakland County Circuit Court, among those called to testify Wednesday was Dorecca Powell, a 20-plus year member of the motorcycle club, who was working security the night of the party. Powell said her job was to frisk female, non-club members before they could get into the building’s main area. Powell, along with other club members who testified, noted that only “civilians” — those who aren’t members of Night Riders or other motorcycle clubs — were searched at the door.
Kincade was not a Night Riders member but did belong to the Phantom Motorcycle Club in Pontiac, according to testimony presented during the trial.
Powell told the court she arrived at the club’s building shortly after midnight that night, a few hours before gunfire rang out. Not long afterward, two club members were seen “wrestling” with Ramsey, who she heard say “I fu**ed up,” Powell testified.
