Grand jury indicts 106 in Waco biker shooting

WACO, Texas -- A grand jury has returned indictments for engaging in organized criminal activity against 106 of the 177 bikers arrested following the deadly shootout outside a Waco, Texas, restaurant in May.

McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna said at a news conference Tuesday evening that the panel acted on all 106 cases that it had been asked to consider. He says law enforcement agencies are still working on additional cases related to the shootout between police and bikers outside of a Twin Peaks restaurant.

He says, "We're not done. We still have a lot of work to do, and we'll continue to do that."

Nine people died and 20 were injured during the shooting. The violence erupted May 17 before a meeting of a coalition of motorcycle clubs that advocates rider safety.

Police have said two rival biker gangs got into a confrontation that turned deadly when one group of bikers opened fire on another outside a Twin Peaks restaurant.

Two biker gangs were identified as the chief participants in the Twin Peaks gun fight, the Bandidos and the Cossacks. Both blame each other for the events that took place.

Video surfaced in October from the shootout, reported CBS affiliate DFW. The video shows biker gang members shooting guns, taking cover inside the restaurant and running from gun shots.

Bikers and public watchdogs have criticized authorities for how they've handled the investigation, citing the mass arrests in which people were held for days or weeks on $1 million bonds without sufficient evidence to support such actions four months after the shootings.
