Roughly 170 Waco biker mug shots were released Tuesday, two days after the group was arrested in a deadly mass shooting outside a Twin Peaks restaurant.

Violence broke out between five biker gangs Sunday at the Waco Twin Peaks Bar and Grill, leaving nine dead and at least 18 injured, MySanAntonio.com reported.

Each of the bikers was arrested for engaging in organized criminal activity and held on $1 million bond, according to the McLennan County Jail’s online roster. Three defendants, however, were mistakenly released Tuesday, and police are still searching for one of them after taking the other two suspects into custody again.

According to Time magazine, authorities said the fight started outside when a vehicle rolled over a man’s foot and then moved inside.

MySA.com, however, reported that the fighting began outside over a parking spot.

According to the Daily Mail, witnesses said the confrontation looked like a setup as a result of one gang ambushing another.

Jail and court staff are currently working to process the high volume of suspects as well as separate rival biker gangs, The Dallas Morning News reported.

Johnny Snyder, vice president of the Waco Boozefighters Motorcycle Club, told MySA.com that he was not injured in the chain, knife, and gun battle, but was questioned by police.

Snyder declined to comment on what he saw during the outbreak, saying he was concerned only with “me not getting shot.”

Twitter users shared their feelings on the brawl.







“Out of 32 years working biker cases, this is the biggest one I have seen in the United States,” Steve Trethewy, who works in the intelligence unit of the Arizona Department of Public Safety, told The New York Times. “The case will be a challenge for law enforcement. I am glad I am not the investigator. It is huge.”
