Danville Police are searching for the person who shot a man and woman and injured another person on Sunday Morning after a gathering at the Outcast Motorcycle Clubhouse.

While police are unsure of the Outcast Motorcycle Club or members were involved in the gathering or shooting, they say the clubhouse has been a new addition to their radar,

"We are familiar with it, it's a new location for us to be aware of but we are looking into what exactly was going on." said Captain Matt Carter, Danville Police.

This is the second shooting on Hughes Street this year.

In July, a man was found dead in his car with gunshot wounds
on the same block as Sunday morning's shooting.

The shooting and other recent crimes on that street has left residents in fear of what could happen next.

"We definitely stepped up our presence in that area, we have already done that prior to this incident, the biggest thing we can ask for from the public is for people to call us and give us information." said Carter.

Police have not connected the shooting or gathering directly to the Outcast Motorcycle Club or members.

All of the victims are expected to recover.
