Monday, 18 May 2015 10:15 AM

More than 190 people have been arrested and a restaurant has been closed after a shootout between rival motorcycle gangs left nine bikers dead.

Waco police on Monday announced the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission closed Twin Peaks for a week amid safety concerns.

Police say the deadly gunfire broke out Sunday following a dispute in a bathroom that moved into the parking lot. Police say 18 bikers were wounded.

Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton says 192 people were being booked on charges of engaging in organized crime.

Swanton also says law enforcement will continue to guard the town after receiving threats overnight from various biker groups. The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, responsible for alcohol regulations and compliance, then closed Twin Peaks for seven days.

Names of the nine bikers who died weren't immediately released.
