Man recovering after being shot at a local motorcycle club

Colorado Springs Police continue their search for a suspect involved in a shooting early Tuesday morning.

Just after 3 a.m., officers arrived at the Sin City Disciples Club at 628 W. Vermijo Street and found a 32-year-old man shot.

Fortunately, police say the wound was non-life threatening. He is recovering tonight at Memorial Hospital.

This isn't the first time a violent crime has taken place at this club.

In March of 2012, 31-year-old Virgil Means was gunned down after attempting to retrieve his wallet he allegedly left inside the club. Police say Means was ambushed by several Sin City gunmen in what might have been a planned attack.

Six arrests were made in that case, including 3 active-duty Fort Carson soldiers.

DeAngelo Wells, 24, pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence in that incident.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 10.

The other five men arrested are still awaiting trial.

News 5 stopped by the club twice Tuesday for comment.

The parking lot was empty and the lights had been turned off.

Police say the shooting suspect escaped in a dark colored Chevrolet Tahoe.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Colorado Springs Police.
