Dramatic raw video shows Waco biker shootout.

Dramatic surveillance footage and crime-scene photos obtained by CNN show the deadly progression of a shootout between rival biker gangs in Waco, Texas, in May that left nine dead. A witness to the shooting, which erupted at a Twin Peaks “breastaurant” allegedly between the Bandidos and the Cossacks, said it was like “the O.K.

Corral.” In the silent video, men sporting tattoos and black leather jackets starting punching each other, pull guns and fire, or hit the deck as scantily clad waitresses flee the scene. Waco police and the McLennan County district attorney’s office said they didn’t release the clip, adding that whoever made it public could be “subject to ethical and legal issues.” And they were right. “About 12:15 p.m. local time, a fight reportedly started in the bathroom, then moved into the bar and finally spilled into the parking lot, where the motorcycle riders went at each other with guns, knives, chains and clubs. “Sgt.

Patrick Swanton, a spokesman for the Waco police, says: ‘Our officers engaged hostile targets, and we started shooting at people who were shooting at other people. Swanton described the crime scene as ‘gruesome.’ ” The Dallas Morning News reports that “despite the $1 million bonds slapped on each person held in custody, not a single person has yet been charged in the fatal incident.
