BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Birmingham police say six people, including an off-duty Birmingham police department officer, were shot and one man was killed in a shooting at a motorcycle club in Ensley.

Sergeant Rodarius Mauldin with Birmingham police said the shooting happened just before midnight Saturday.

Mauldin said officers responded to a call of shots fired at the #1 Stunnas Motor Sport Club in the 400 block of 18th Street in Ensley.

When they arrived, officers found six people had been shot. The Jefferson County Coroner reports 40-year-old Naquinton Brown was killed.

Mauldin said one of the people shot was an off-duty Birmingham police officer, who was patronizing the motorcycle club. Sgt. Mauldin says the unidentified officer has non-life threatening injuries.

Mauldin said the other four individuals wounded sustained non-life threatening injuries.

A preliminary investigation suggests an altercation happened prior to shots being fired.

No one has been arrested and there are no suspects.

Mauldin said roads in a two block radius around the motorcycle club have been blocked by officers.

The Alabama Bureau of Investigations is the lead agency investigating the shooting.
