Horrific Shootout At Sports Bar Chain Prompts The Restaurant’s Permanent Closure


A massive biker-gang fight at a Twin Peaks in Waco, Texas, left nine dead and 192 in police custody. The incident occurred Sunday, May 17 at the mountain-themed sport lodge and bar, closing it down in order for authorities to secure the scene. Turns out, Twin Peaks’ corporate office in Dallas has no plans to reopen the location.

The fight allegedly began over a parking spot during a recruitment for new gang members. Police were already on the scene to make sure nothing went wrong before the brawl started in the restaurant’s parking lot. What began as a heated argument quickly led to fists, knives, chains and guns being drawn.

Officers opened fire as things escalated. A total of nine gang members were killed, 18 hospitalized and 192 arrested once things came to an end. Luckily, no customers or bystanders were injured at all.

In a public statement, the company said that the management of the location chose to ignore warnings and advice from corporate and the local police and wanted to keep certain gang members around. Because of this, which presumably led to the horrific incident, the Waco location will be shut down and the franchise agreement will be revoked.
