The Indiana Supreme Court has stripped a former Gary attorney of his law license for attempting to kill a man in a motorcycle gang feud.

The high court suspended Jerry "Angel" Peteet from the practice of law this month in a preliminary move that could result in his permanent disbarment.

Peteet, 50, who was a trial lawyer for 23 years, is serving a 23-year prison term for his conviction this spring on conspiracy and racketeering charges he attempted to murder Robert Taylor.

Taylor was shot May 28, 2009, in a parking lot outside the now-shuttered Bennigan's Grill and Tavern in Gary during wide-ranging clash between rival gangs.
