GATESVILLE (AP) - A motorcyclist killed in a crash as he was speeding away from police on what authorities say was a stolen bike has been identified as one of the bikers indicted in the deadly May 2015 shooting at a Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco.

Authorities in Gatesville say 29-year-old Trey Alston Short, of Temple, was killed Friday night when his motorcycle reported stolen in June in Waco collided at high speed with a minivan. Police in the town about 35 miles west of Waco had attempted to pull him over. About a minute later, he collided with the van, turning it over and throwing him from the bike.

Short was among bikers indicted last November for the shootout involving rival biker gangs and police. Nine people were killed and 20 injured.
