WACO (AP) — The term of a Texas grand jury considering the cases of bikers arrested after a deadly shootout last year at a Waco restaurant has expired, giving defense attorneys hope that the 39 people whose cases weren't considered won't be indicted.

But McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna said Friday that he could still present the cases to another grand jury and that the criminal investigation continues.

The grand jury has indicted 154 people on the identical charge of engaging in organized criminal activity.

The shootout between bikers and police occurred outside a Twin Peaks restaurant in May 2015, shortly before a scheduled meeting of the Confederation of Clubs and Independents, a coalition of motorcycle clubs that advocates rider safety. Nine people were killed.
