WATERLOO, IA (Associated Press) – Authorities say gunfire erupted at a gathering of motorcycle clubs in Iowa, killing one person and wounding seven others.

Waterloo Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald says about 100 people were at the gathering inside a building in Waterloo early Saturday when there was “some kind of confrontation.” He says nearby police officers heard the gunfire and responded within seconds.

Eight people had gunshot wounds and one of them later died. Four other people were hurt by broken glass or other debris while fleeing.

Investigators are still trying to determine whether there was more than one shooter and no arrests have been made.
