Nine people are dead and several injured after a shootout between rival biker gangs at a restaurant in Waco, Texas.
Police told KWTX rival gangs started arguing shortly after noon Sunday at a Twin Peaks restaurant. Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton says the incident quickly turned violent, escalating from "fists and feet to chains, clubs and knives, then to gunfire."
"Those biker rival gangs were firing weapons at each individual. Our officers moved in. At that point, we treated as an active shooter scene. ... Our officers moved in. Our officers did fire," Swanton said.
