The two primary motorcycle clubs connected to the May 17, 2015, shooting at the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco Texas were both at a motorcycle shop Thursday night, although no violence occurred according to Waco police.
Waco Harley-Davidson called police when the two rival clubs showed up during an event at the dealership according to a report in the local Waco newspaper.
“Management called in, saying they were having an event there and another group showed up and made everyone feel very uncomfortable,” Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said. “Things got very tense because of who showed up . . . but it was significant in the fact that the same groups that were involved in Twin Peaks were involved in (Thursday night’s) events. It got very tense because of those groups coming back together.”
Police did not name the clubs, but witnesses and police scanner traffic indicated that members of the Bandidos and support groups were at Harley-Davidson before members from the Cossacks and its support groups came and formed a perimeter line around the building.
The two clubs as well as other support clubs were involved in the fatal shootout in May, 2015 at Twin Peaks that left nine dead and about two dozen injured. Many bikers at the scene and on social media have blamed the heavy police presence at Twin Peaks for inciting the rival clubs to violence in that incident.
