A motorcycle club gathering turns deadly, after a shootout takes place during a weekend party.

It happened late Saturday night near I-44 and Lincoln Boulevard. In all, four people were shot and rushed to the hospital. Right now one of those bikers, 22-year-old Aaron Wayne Brown, is listed in serious condition, his brother, 41-year-old Joe Brown, is listed in fair condition and a third biker, 32-year-old Michael Hogue was treated and released from the hospital.

All three are from Oklahoma City, according to Oklahoma City police. We know a fourth biker, 42-year-old Kevin Miller of Antlers Oklahoma, didn't make it, and died shortly after he arrived at the hospital.

This all happened during a gathering of several motorcycle club members. But so far, only witnesses who are not in the club are talking.

"They throw parties there about every two to three months," said Jay Nasir. He says he heard several shots coming from the Oak Room on Lincoln Boulevard late Saturday night, as he was working his shift at a nearby gas station.

"It was not one biker gang it was one guy throwing a party for a lot of biker gangs," he said.

Nasir says most of the times, the parties are peaceful.

Oklahoma City police were called out to the Oak Room banquet hall shortly before midnight, after getting a report that the shooting had occurred. Several police officers responded since witnesses like Nasir reported more than a hundred bikers were at the party.

"It took everybody by surprise really," said Nasir. "I mean they come every three months, they come, they party and they leave."

Police say when officers arrived, they found a total of four people had been shot.

"It appears that the four were in the parking lot when, for whatever reason, several of them started exchanging shots at each other," said Msgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Nasir, for one, is still shocked it happened, since many of the bikers visit his store.

"Everybody was nice, no problems with anybody," he said. "I guess it just wasn't their night, you know."

Police still do not know what motivated the shooting but are still investigating. It will be up to the DA's office as to whether any charges will be filed.
