Texas police charge 192 bikers

Texas police intend to charge 192 bikers with participation in an organized criminal gang, after nine people were killed in a bar-shootout, and 18 were injured.

Bulk shootout between bikers occurred on May 17 at the bar "Twin Peaks" in the city of waco. According to preliminary data, the fight began with a fight in the toilet of the bar and turned into an armed conflict with the use of knives, chains and firearms.

One of the witnesses to the incident told the local media that the parking of the restaurant resembled a war zone: according to her, during the shootout, 30 to 100 shots were fired.

A Waco police officer called this the most horrific scene he encountered in his entire career.

Up to five competing groups of bikers participated in the fight. Visitors and employees of the nearby café managed to lock themselves in the freezer room, and they were subsequently taken out of the room, accompanied by the police.

“This is one of the worst gunfights we've ever seen in a city. They started shooting at our policemen, ”said Police Sergeant Patrick Swanton.
