One woman was killed and a woman and two men were wounded when numerous shots were fired behind a crowded motorcycle club on East Colfax Avenue early this morning.

All four people were taken to local hospitals where one of the two women was pronounced dead, said Detective Shannon Youngquist Lucy of the Aurora Police Department.

The other three persons’ gunshot wounds were not life-threatening, Lucy said.

The names of the victims have not been released because family members had not yet been notified, she said.

A large contingent of police officers was called to the Street Soldierz Motorcycle Club on the 9500 block of East Colfax Avenue at 3 a.m. on a report of numerous gunshots, Lucy said.

Detectives are in the early stages of the investigation. A motive has not been determined, Lucy said.

A website for the Street Soldierz Motorcycle Club says the gang was established in the summer of 2005.

“The mission of the Street Soldierz is to encourage other riders to make a strong contribution to their communities to bring about charity and unity among fellow riders,” the website says.

But a profanity-laced rap song on the same link describes shootings and confrontations with police.

“I’m a lit fuse… I’m a thug… I need a reason to give this trigger a squeeze… Even if my collar bones crush or crumble I will never fall or stumble,” the rap song goes.

During the number, the sound of gunshots erupt in a parking lot and the sound of women screaming can be heard.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Detective Warren Miller at 303-739-6117.
