TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Police have released the name of one suspect and are continuing to search for two men believed involved in a shooting outside an Arizona nightclub that injured 15 people.

Police say 10 men and five women injured Friday night outside the Clubhouse Music Venue have been treated and released from hospitals. Authorities earlier said 14 people were hurt but raised that number Monday.

Investigators have recovered two guns allegedly used in the shootout between rival gangs as up to 300 people waited in line outside the club for a rap concert.

Authorities believe the shooting started after Jones and two documented members of the South Phoenix Vista Bloods taunted rival gang members.
