Bike Gang Shootout Results in Mass Arrests

The lunch time biker gang shoot out at Twin Peaks Restaurant in Waco has resulted in almost 200 arrests.  KWTX in Waco reports that the aftermath of the bloody Sunday shootout will continue for months as police and prosecutors sort out what happened when at least five biker gangs clashed.

All arrested suspects have been charged with engaging in organized criminal activity but some could face more charges as the investigation continues.

The nine bodies of gang members who died in the Sunday afternoon parking lot shootout at Waco’s Twin Peaks restaurant had been taken to various morgues for autopsy.

Bullet-riddled vehicles left behind by customers and employees still sat in the parking lot between Twin Peaks and Don Carlos restaurant but were being moved to forensic laboratories for investigation Monday morning.

At least two bikers were arrested in the early morning hours on Monday as they rode into town but their identities and charges were not made public.  Local law enforcement officers said they remain on edge in an effort to prevent any more violence.

Rival motorcycle gangs turned a local restaurant into a shooting gallery Sunday afternoon and when the gunfire was over, nine people were dead and 18 were injured.

Early Monday, law enforcement had turned their attention to the risk of additional bike gang members looking to retaliate, and initiate further violence in the Waco area.

The fight apparently erupted over a long brewing conflict between the Bandidos and the Cossacks.

      Red suspects they will find room and most of them will make bail fairly quickly if they are not directly implicated in the shooting. This is going to be a nightmare to sort out who actually killed who. My guess is that the police took out most of the bad guys.
