PINAL COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Four were injured, one critically, in a gunfight Sunday morning between rival motorcycle gangs at the Loose Cannons Motorcycle Club.

A man shot in the shoulder and stomach was in critical condition in a Phoenix hospital Sunday morning, Pinal County Sheriff's information officer Tamra Ingersoll told Tucson News Now.

Another man was stable after being shot in the head, and a woman was treated and released after being shot in the back, Ingersoll said.

A man shot in the buttocks was treated at the scene.

Loose Cannons Motorcycle Club was hosting a party when members of a rival gang, Devils Disciples Motorcycle Club, showed up, Ingersoll said.

Around 1:30 a.m., shots were fired, people began yelling and called 9-1-1.

"When deputies arrived on scene, there were signs of a shootout, with spent casings littering the ground," Ingersoll said.

Approximately 75 were inside the clubhouse, she said.

"At this time, witnesses at the party are not cooperating with detectives as they investigate this crime," Ingersoll said.

The club is located at 3600 block of East Apache Trail in Apache Junction.
