One person is dead and two others are recovering from gunshot wounds after shots rang out at a motorcycle club party.It happened around 2 a.m. Sunday morning at Valentine and Muscat. That's just South of Fresno.

Police said three people were shot here at Clem's, a facility that they said was rented out by the "Full Throttle Motorcycle Club".

Fellow motorcycle riders said a member of that club was shot and killed and the two other people shot were not a part of any motorcycle club.

Members of the "Full Throttle Motorcycle Club" gathered here on West Harvard Avenue to remember Kenny or "Canine", his motorcycle nickname.

They said Kenny was shot and killed while trying to intervene an argument between two non-club members early Sunday morning.

Stan Jones, Fresno Unity Alliance said: "It was an isolated, probably between two civilians and probably one of our people intervened to maybe stop it or send him someplace else and got involved".

Jones is part of Fresno Unity Alliance, a collaborative of more than thirty local motorcycle clubs. Jones insists the shooting at Clem's was not a result of different motorcycle clubs fighting.

The Fresno County Sheriff's Office said several hundred people were at Clem's in Fresno County Saturday night for a party put on by the "Full Throttle Motorcycle Club."

Just before two in the morning the sheriff's office got a call for a shooting at Clem's. When deputies arrived on the scene they found Kenny dead.

Scott Jones, Fresno County Undersheriff said: "The deputies when they arrived on scene they began CPR until paramedics took over and transported him"

Deputies later found out two other men who were at the party were also taken to Fresno Community Regional Medical Center with gunshot wounds.

The Fresno Unity Alliance said Kenny was from Bakersfield and had been part of motorcycle clubs for at least 13 years. They said he's survived by his wife and children. They want him to be remembered as a family man.

The Fresno Unity Alliance is meeting Sunday to talk about stricter rules for letting non-motorcycle club members into parties that they sponsor.

The FCSO said they're having trouble getting details about exactly what happened and are asking anyone with info to come forward.
