    1 killed, at least 6 hurt in Denver motorcycle show shooting

    One person was killed and six people were hurt Saturday afternoon after shots were fired and a stabbing occurred at a motorcycle show in Denver, police said.

    The violence broke out at about 12:45 p.m. (2:45 p.m. ET) during Colorado Motorcycle Expo weekend at the National Western Complex, said Denver police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez.

    Three people were listed in critical condition at Denver Health Medical Center and three were in stable condition, said Dr. Kevin McVaney, an emergency physician. He would not specify what kind of injuries they suffered.

    Denver Health earlier tweeted that nine people had been taken to area hospitals.

    Lopez did not say whether the person killed was stabbed or shot. Nobody has been arrested, she said.

    The hospital was put on lockdown as a safety precaution.

    The Denver Post quoted a witness as saying the feud was started by rival biker gangs. The witness asked to remain anonymous because of fear of retaliation, the newspaper said.

    Lopez was asked whether motorcycle gangs were involved. She said she didn't know. Video showed men wearing vests with patches gathered outside the hospital.

    The complex is near the Denver Coliseum. Police initially tweeted that the incident occurred at the coliseum.

    Organizers of the motorcycle expo have not announced whether the event will be held on Sunday.

    Rival biker gangs? It's about 3 degrees Celsius in the daytime and -5 at night in Denver this time of year. Motorcycles are useless there.

    All you need are rival gang colours with patches , guns , knives and the gang macho mentality.
    Motorcycles aren't necessarily an integral part of the equation to that violence.

    Possibly initiated over a senorita, "What you say, hombre ?"
