SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — One person has been killed and two others wounded in a shooting at a hotel-casino in Sparks that witnesses say involved members of rival motorcycle gangs, the Vagos and Hells Angels.
Sparks police confirmed the fatal shooting at John Ascuaga's Nugget about 11:30 p.m. Friday but they have not identified any of the people involved.
Daniel Sharp of Stockton, Calif., told the Reno Gazette-Journal he was in the dance area at the Nugget for the Street Vibrations biker festival when a group of Vagos club members came in.
He says a single Hells Angel then entered, soon followed by several more. Within five minutes he says a fight erupted and shots rang out.
Police Lt. Pete Krall says they are investigating different motorcycle clubs but declined to name them.
