“Keep in mind Texas is one of the Jade Helm states and here you have some hostile citizens”
WACO, Texas (Reuters) – Police braced for retaliation attacks after 170 people were charged on Monday in connection with the shootout among motorcycle gangs a day earlier that left nine dead and 18 wounded at a Waco, Texas, restaurant turned into a blood-soaked crime scene.
Bikers from five rival gangs attacked each other with guns, knives, brass knuckles, clubs and motorcycle chains at a Twin Peaks Sports Bar and Grill in the central Texas city. No bystanders or police were injured, police said.
Bikers were reported to be traveling to the city following the shooting and police have been threatened, he said.
The dispute appeared to be over territory and membership, Swanton said, adding that there was no indication it was caused by a fight over drug trafficking.
