Leaked Video Shows The Texas Biker Gang Shootout That Killed 9

Texas cops have released footage of the Waco shootout that claimed nine lives, left more than 20 wounded and got 177 arrested in May.

Newly obtained surveillance video of the May shootout in Waco, Texas shows how the chaotic brawl between rival biker gangs spilled out from a restaurant, eventually leading to nine deaths and 177 arrests.

The Bandidos and Cossacks gangs apparently were in a turf war, and the video shows the bloody and violent aftermath. 

Men duck for cover as bullets start flying inside Twin Peaks restaurant. At least one gangster fires shots in the video.

Nine people died in the violence and 20 were wounded.

"We had wounded inside, we had people stabbed, we had people shot and we had people beat," Waco police spokesman Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said at a press conference at the time.

Police recovered a total of 480 weapons, according to CNN, including 151 guns, knives, brass knuckles, batons, hammers and padlocks wrapped in bandannas.

"The whole incident probably didn't last more than 90 seconds," John Wilson, the president of Waco's Cossaks chapter, told CNN. "It seemed like an hour when you're lying there and people are getting shot around you, and bullets are whizzing by you."

Although the arrested men were charged with engaging in organized crime activity, no one has been charged for the deaths of the nine victims.
