    Police say two people have been killed and at least three people wounded in a shootout between two local two biker gangs in northeast Ohio.

    A shootout between rival biker groups in Ohio Saturday left two people dead and three others wounded, police said.

    The gunfight broke out in the parking lot of a bar in Warren Township, about 55 miles east of Cleveland. Officials told NBC affiliate WFMJ that one of the groups at the bar was planning the route for a Father's Day Poker Run when the confrontation occurred.

    Township Police Chief Don Bishop said that four of the people shot — including the two fatalities — were from one group of bikers. The fifth person wounded was from the second gang, he added. The names of the victims were not released.

    There had been no arrests as of Saturday evening, Bishop said, but he said police have interviewed around 25 people and are pursuing leads.
