5:20 p.m., update: The city of Sparks ended its state of emergency at 5 p.m. today that was declared in the city on Saturday due to the potential of further violence stemming from shootings between rival motorcycle clubs Friday night..

No further violence has occurred from these incidents.

“We will not allow, nor will we tolerate violent behavior by any groups or individuals in the City of Sparks.” said Sparks Mayor R. Geno Martini. “The special event held in Sparks was intended for motorcycle enthusiasts and attracts thousands of people annually, including families with children.

“The safety and security of event attendees in Sparks is a priority,” Martini said. “The individuals who engaged in the violence do not in any way reflect the majority of the event attendees.
“We appreciate the understanding of our residents and businesses throughout the last 24 hours. We want to thank our regional partners, the city of Reno and Washoe County for their support and resources during this time. We also send our appreciation to Governor Sandoval for his willingness to support our efforts.”
