WACO, Texas — A phalanx of law enforcement officers were combing a bloody, bullet-riddled crime scene Monday, trying to sort out who killed whom a day after a melee involving rival biker gangs left nine people dead.
Some of the dead and wounded may have been shot by officers responding to the bedlam at the Twin Peaks restaurant franchise, Waco police spokesman Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.
“They started shooting at our officers and our officers returned fire,” Swanton said. Most of the dead and wounded suffered from gunshot and stab wounds, he added.
“It is a pretty gruesome scene,” Swanton said.
How many bikers may have died from police gunfire is not yet known. Citing a law enforcement source, CNN reported that four of the dead bikers were shot by police.
