— An Oklahoma City man was killed after a dispute between two females turned violent at a Spencer nightclub early Saturday.

More than 50 shots were fired and at least one other person was injured after a fight broke out about 2:30 a.m. at Shaker's Sports Bar, 8427 NE 23, said Spencer Police Chief Virgil Green.

Jean-Ciar Anton Pierce, 23, died after he was shot in the chin and in the chest while driving away from the scene.

He was found in his car about 200 yards from the club, where the car had crashed into a utility pole. A handgun was found on the floorboard of Pierce's car, Green said.

“But we've kind of ruled out that he didn't shoot himself — he was actually shot while he was trying to get away,” the chief said.

Mark Myers, spokesman for Oklahoma County sheriff's department, said about 30 people were involved in the fight inside the club.

The dispute took place over the course of about an hour, he said.

About 3:30 a.m., an unidentified man entered the club and began firing a handgun.

The fighting then spilled out into the parking lot, where several vehicles were damaged by bullets.
