Eight people charged in connection to a deadly Oklahoma City shooting plead not guilty Wednesday.

Police say the shooting at the Whiskey Barrel Saloon in April was a clash between rival biker gangs.

According to court documents, three alleged gang members were killed and several were injured. So far, 15 people are facing charges as a result of the shooting.

Those formally arraigned Wednesday face a number of charges ranging from conspiracy to commit a felony to accessory to murder.

Investigators say they’re affiliated with or connected to the same gang.

A ninth person, Jefferson Girard, pleaded not guilty on Monday. Two others, Tyler Lewis and Eric Samaniego, pleaded guilty Monday to charges of conspiracy to commit a felony and gang-related offenses. Each received a suspended sentence.

Tyler Myers, the first person arrested in the case, is charged separately. Investigators claim Myers is affiliated with a rival gang. He was initially charged with murder, but it has been reduced to two counts of first-degree manslaughter.

Three additional suspects appeared before a judge Wednesday, but did not enter pleas. They will appear in court later this month.

The eight that entered a plea of not guilty will have their next hearing on January 17th.
