It all started at around 6 p.m. on Saturday, when anti-gang enforcement deputies were investigating weapon offenses and possible gang members at the Savage Assassins motorcycle clubhouse near Belmont and First.
Deputies say they spotted a man standing outside of the clubhouse with a gun on him.
The man ran back into the clubhouse and deputies followed him in, but left after a verbal confrontation took place inside.
Since the man had a gun, S.W.AT. was called out to the scene, leading to an hours-long standoff.
After receiving a search warrant, deputies started ordering people out of the clubhouse, one by one.
One man came out with a gun and was arrested by police without incident.
Eight people were arrested and 42 others were detained while deputies began to search the clubhouse.
One woman with a heart condition was taken from the scene to Community Regional Medical Center, police say she was not injured during the standoff.
