Dozens of Arizona police officers have flooded into a small Arizona community after a shoot-out involving motorcycle gang members.

Yavapai County sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn says four or five people were shot and injured on Saturday.

One was flown to a Phoenix-area hospital. Their conditions were not immediately known.

No deaths were reported.

An unknown number of people were arrested.

Television images show several dozen men and a few women dressed in biker garb outside a rural home in the Chino Valley area with motorcycles parked alongside. Heavily armed police officers watched over them.

D'Evelyn says sheriff's dispatchers started receiving calls about the shooting shortly after noon.
