More than 200 people people had gathered at a restaurant in Waco on Sunday when a dispute heated up and spilled into a nearby parking lot, with bikers shooting at each other and battling openly with chains, clubs and bats. The interior of the restaurant was littered with bullet casings, knives, a club, bodies and pools of blood, said Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton.

Swanton said it was “amazing” that bystanders had not been injured as many families were having Sunday lunch at an nearby restaurant.

The restaurant where the shooting took place will be closed for seven days, according to police, who said the location was “still a very active crime scene this morning.”

“Our investigation will continue throughout the day. Crime scene is littered with bullets, blood and other evidence. Civilian as well as Police units with bullet holes remain to be processed,” read a post on the Waco Police Facebook page.
