Officers were searching for stolen vehicles at a home that they say is frequented by members of the Resurrection motorcycle "gang".
An attorney for Resurrection disputes the police description, saying Resurrection is a ‘club’ and not a ‘gang’.
Police Cmdr. Eric Drever said, "There is probably nothing that you can do to prevent an ambush similar to what this was. I would consider this an ambush."
Police say no one was hurt during the shooting.
Officers say the bikers sped away southbound on I-5. One motorcycle was green and the other was gray.
Officers believe Kevin Vaughn may have been involved. Vaughn is a 12-time felon with the word 'hatred' tattooed on his forehead.
The attorney for Resurrection also disputes that Kevin Vaughn is a member of Resurrection Motorcycle Club.
The shots woke Amanda Huber and her two children Thursday morning.
"This is new to me and my kids are freaking out. It’s not OK," she said.
Huber won't let her children play in front of the home because of the biker gang.
"I don’t know what to say. They’re just scared. Obviously, they know what gunfire sounds like but to actually hear it in real life, they’re freaked out," Huber said.
Police say Vaughn should be considered armed and dangerous.
