    WACO, Texas — Nine people were killed Sunday and some others injured after a shootout erupted among rival biker gangs at a Central Texas restaurant, sending patrons and bystanders fleeing for safety, a police spokesman said.The violence erupted shortly after noon at a busy Waco marketplace along Interstate 35 that draws a large lunchtime crowd. Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said eight people died at the scene of the shooting at Twin Peaks restaurant and another person at a hospital. It's not immediately clear if bystanders are among the dead.Others were injured, Swanton said, but just how many and the severity of those injuries was not known."There are still bodies on the scene of the parking lot at Twin Peaks," he said. "There are bodies that are scattered throughout the parking lot of the next adjoining business."A photo from the scene showed dozens of motorcycles parked in a lot. Among the bikes, at least three people wearing what looked like biker jackets were on the ground, two on their backs and one face down. Police were standing a few feet away in a group. Several other people also wearing biker jackets were standing or sitting nearby.Swanton said police were aware in advance that at least three rival gangs would be gathering at the restaurant and at least 12 Waco officers in addition to state troopers were at the restaurant when the fight began.When the shooting began in the restaurant and then continued outside, armed bikers were shot by officers, Swanton said, explaining that the actions of law enforcement prevented further deaths.It's not known what triggered the violence but Swanton and McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna said tensions had simmered among rival gangs for months."Apparently the management (of Twin Peaks) wanted them here and so we didn't have any say-so on whether they could be here or not," Swanton said.Attempts to contact Twin Peaks for comment were not immediately successful.The fight inside the restaurant began when punches were thrown and it quickly escalated to include chains and knives before firearms were drawn, Swanton said.Photo

    I wonder how many of these guys were CCW carriers just trying to stop a crime?

    Majority of murders even among blacks are 1-2 victims of theft or they knew the killer, in other words the same motivation as every other violent act

    Now the real question is if these bikers had knives instead would there be as many casualties...
    that's a stupid question. people who are outlaw bikers don't tend to care much about gun control laws

    and to answer that stupid question-it depends how good their knife techniques are

    well given your constant claims that CCW makes people unsafe, how many of them were actually licensed CCW holders and were actually legal gun owners

    NEOCONS often retain leftwing SOCIAL values such as being in favor of GUN CONTROL like well known NEO CONS like Charles Krauthammer

    Just silly isn't it? There we have evidence of a life where everybody carries.

    Just as plain as the noses on their face, but the gun crowd just looks the other way...

    There was a similar incident a few years ago between two biker gangs in Laughlin, Nevada, just on the other side of the Arizona/Nevada line. It happened in a big casino during bike week, between the Mongols and the Hell's Angels. Of course the casino was wired with more cameras than a supermax prison. I don't think anyone involved was a Rhode Scholar. The incident let to more murders which the cops in California, Nevada and Arizona followed and subsequently led to a tri or bi state coordinated raid, which was pretty cool.

    LOL, I guess that is "progressive speak" for a concession

    using the term "neo con" to try to make a "conservative" sound even more conservative when in reality it means a recent convert to conservatism (and usually not a complete one) is a sign of profound ignorance of political philosophy
