Nearly 200 arrested in Texas after deadly biker gang shootout

192 arrested and charged with ‘engaging in organized crime’ in Texas biker gang shootout that left 9 dead, and 18 injured.

WACO, TEXAS, UNITED STATES (MAY 17, 2015) (NBC) – Police in Waco, Texas said on Monday (May 18) that 192 people were being arrested in connection with a biker gang shootout that left nine dead and 18 injured a day earlier.

“Those are individuals that were involved in the Twin Peaks shooting last night,” said Waco Police Sgt. Patrick Swanton. “They are all being charged with ‘engaging in organized crime.”

Swanton said the Mc Lennan County district attorney was on scene through the night assisting with the arrests.

A simmering feud among rival biker gangs boiled over at a sports bar on Sunday, leading to a deadly gun battle in the parking lot.

According to Swanton, Twin Peaks Bar will be shut down for seven days due to “safety issues”.
