27 arrested in Arizona rival biker shootout

Aug 22, 2010 6:10:00 PM - thestate.com
Arizona authorities say 27 people have been booked on charges ranging from attempted murder to participation in a criminal street gang after shootings involving members of rival motorcycle gangs, the Vagos and Hells Angels.

Detectives estimate at least 50 rounds were fired Saturday during the shootings in the small community of Chino Valley, north of Prescott.

Yavapai sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn says at least five people were shot but none of the wounds was life-threatening.

He says detectives are trying to locate one injured gang member who was helped away from the scene in an unknown vehicle.

The shootings brought dozens of Arizona law enforcement officers to the scene.
