In the wake of the Biker shootout in Waco, Police have issued an Officer Safety Alert warning that the groups involved in the deadly shootout have been ordered to “kill anyone in uniform”. Police were involved in the shooting that included as many as 5 different “outlaw motorcycle clubs” although it has not been determined whether any of the 9 bikers killed were shot by police. The main MCs involved were the Bandidos MC and the Cossacks MC, others such as the Scimitars MC (a feeder club for the Cossacks) and other smaller feeder clubs “colors” were also seen during the brawl. The Bandidos and Cossacks have allegedly had bad blood since a Bandido chapter president was arrested for stabbing two Cossacks in the parking lot of another restaurant.
The shootout left at least 9 dead and 18 injured and although police were at the Twin Peaks Bar & Grill at the time of the shooting, none were injured. As NoozSaurus reported yesterday, there were reports of additional bikers showing up in Waco well into the evening and that there was a strong potential for further confrontations or violence. Now it is being reported that the potential threat may be aimed at police officers themselves.
At the time of the Safety Alert, local, state and federal law enforcement, a large contingent of officers, were still working in cooperation to process the crime scene.
