Nine Bikers Shot Dead in Waco, TX, USA Biker Gang Shootout

** VERTICAL VIDEO WARNING -- PROCEED WITH CAUTION ** A fight that escalated to gunfire between rival biker gangs in a Waco, Texas, restaurant parking lot today left nine people dead, police said. Eighteen people were taken from the scene to hospitals, mostly for gunshot and stab wounds, Waco Police Sgt. Patrick Swanton said at a news conference. Everyone involved was a gang member, police said. The violence began as a fight between "criminal biker gangs" at the Twin Peaks Restaurant in the Central Texas Market Place early this afternoon, Swanton said. The fight then spilled into the parking lot where gang members fired at each other, Swanton said. "As that fight progressed, it progressed very rapidly from hands and feet as weapons to chains," he said. "My understanding a club was involved and knives were involved." Officers were at the scene when the shooting started, police said, and some officers fired at the bikers. No officers were injured, police said. Witnesses reported hearing as many as 100 rounds fired from 30 guns. Police closed the entire Central Texas Market Place shopping area, saying that there was a danger of more violence. "It is still not totally secure because of the intel that we're getting of individuals wanting to do some payback," he said. Over the past few months, he says they were aware of rival biker gangs causing issues at the Twin Peaks restaurant. "We have attempted to work with the local management of Twin Peaks to get that cut back to no avail," he said. "They have not been of much assistance to us."
