Arizona Police Investigating Oscar De La Torre Munoz in Freeway Shootings … Arrested Person of Interest on Unrelated Marijuana Possession Charge (VIDEO)
Possible break in the Arizona highway shootings …
19 year old Oscar De La Torre Munoz is being investigated by Arizona police as a person of interest in the numerous shootings that have occurred on the heavily-traveled Interstate 10 near Phoenix. Oscar De La Torre Munoz was arrested on a separate marijuana possession charge and booked into jail. At least 11 shootings have taken place in I-10 which the authorities are calling an act of domestic terrorism. According to Fox News, the man taken into custody in Phoenix Friday allegedly boasted to friends of his involvement in a rash of freeway shootings over the last 12 days.
Authorities in Arizona arrested a 19-year-old man considered a person of interest in a spate of shootings on the heavily-traveled Interstate 10 near Phoenix on an unrelated marijuana possession charge.
Oscar De La Torre Munoz was booked into the Maricopa County jail late Friday. Munoz, 19, of Avondale, was taken into custody along with his mother Friday morning at a gas station a few miles from I-10, officials with the state’s Department of Public Safety said.
His mother was questioned but later released.
Is Oscar De La Torre Munoz the Phoenix Highway shooter?
Earlier Friday, the man was taken into custody and questioned as police sought to find whoever is behind the shootings that have terrified Phoenix drivers, the Arizona Department of Public Safety said. The shootings on or near Interstate 10 occurred over nearly two weeks. Only one person has been injured.
The department said the man is not a suspect in the shootings but called him “a person of interest” in a statement Friday night.
“This person that we detained is for questioning, it’s not solely about this I-10 shooting situation. We’re interviewing and asking him about a number of things,” Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves told reporters Friday.
Two San Antonio, TX John Jay High School Football Players Suspended & Could Face Criminal Charges After Deliberately Hitting Ref From Behind (VIDEO)
REFS LIVES MATTER … TWO JOHN JAY HS FOOTBALL PLAYERS SUSPENDED FOLLOWING WHAT LOOKS LIKE AN INTENTIONAL ASSAULT, WILL THEY FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES.
Two John Jay High School football players have been suspended and could face criminal charges after what it appears to be an intentional targeting of a referee. The incident took place as San Antonio, Texas’ John Jay high school vs Marble Falls Friday night, September 4th 2015. John Jay lost to Marble Falls 15-9 and this is the type of sportsmanship that is taught at their school. Watch the VIDEO below and you can see the intentional targeting of the referee by one player and then the second football player coming in and purposely spearing the ref. Northside ISD athletic director Stan Laing said the video was “very disturbing” and the district is investigating the sequence of events leading up to the play, and the UIL is aware of what happened. Honestly, it does not matter one iota what lead up to this assault. An assault is an assault, stop making excuses. What, you going to blame the ref and say he had it coming?
The suspension of these two thugs should be the least of their problems. The deliberate hitting of this unsuspecting referee is nothing more than assault and should be treated as such. In a world we live in today where punks just have no respect for authority, these two thugs should be charged with felony, aggravated assault. This was a purposeful and intentional act meant to cause harm. They could have paralyzed this ref for life doing what they did. These two thugs should be suspended forever and never be allowed to play football again in any division or conference in Texas or any other state for that matter. Also, they need to be charged with assault. If some one is so heinous and vile an individual to do something like this in broad daylight with people watching and cameras rolling, imagine what they are capable of when no video is there to capture them?

Two San Antonio, Texas high school football players are under investigation after they smashed into a referee during a game, according to local media.
In a play during John Jay High School’s game on Friday, one of the team’s defensive players ran into a referee’s back, sending him to the ground, where another player dove on him, according to a video posted on the San Antonio Express News website.
The unidentified players were immediately ejected from the game, a 15-9 loss to Marble Falls High School, according to the San Antonio newspaper.
Two other John Jay High School players were ejected from the game shortly before the incident, the newspaper reported.
ESPN - Texas high school players suspended, may face charges for hitting referee from behind.
Both players were immediately ejected from the game and later suspended from the team and from school, pending an investigation by the Northside Independent School District. The referee was “very upset” and “wanting to press charges,” Austin Football Officials Association secretary Wayne Elliott said.
“The first thing we want is that those two kids never play football again,” said Elliott, who declined to release the referee’s name and added he was seeking guidance from the state officials association.
Northside Independent School District athletic director Stan Laing told KENS5-TV that the incident Friday was “disturbing” and “inexcusable.”
District spokesman Pascual Gonzalez told The Associated Press on Sunday that it would hear from game officials, coaches and students during an upcoming due process hearing, which also will involve the University Interscholastic League, the state’s school sports governing body.
“It is not the good sportsmanlike behavior that we teach students,” Gonzalez said.
Former NFL Star & Soon to be Hall of Famer Charles Haley Tells SF 49ers Rookies … “Why Don’t You all Act Like the White Guys? You Never See Them in the Paper Getting High or Hitting People”
I GUESS THIS MEANS THAT HALEY WILL BE BANNED FROM THE NFL FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME NOW …
WOW, former Defensive end for the San Fransisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys had some interesting comments and advice for the 2015 class of 49er rookies at a mentoring program. Haley, the soon to be DE who is to be enshrined in the NFL Football Hall of Fame later this summer in Canton, OH told the new crop of rookies, “Why don’t you all act like the white guys? You never see them in the paper getting high or hitting people.” Oh I bet you could have heard a pin drop on that one. Haley said he did it for the shock value to get their attention. I bet he did just that. Of course all the Van Gogh listeners and readers probably only saw or heard that blacks needed to act more like whites. Charles Haley, what a racist!!! Oh, he’s black … then what an uncle Tom.
But you know what, Charles Haley has all the street cred in the world … he is a five-time Super Bowl champion, two with the 49ers and 3 with the Cowboys. If anyone bothered to actually listen to what Haley was trying to tell these newbies to the NFL, he was saying that young players need to have role models, much like he did growing up. Charles Haley was probably one of my favorite Cowboys in the 90′s as his no nonsense approach to the game was amazing. Personally, I would have rather have had him on my D-line than others like Bruce Smith and Reggie White, who garnered more praise. Thus what explains the 5 rings, count ‘em.
Said Haley: “As far as the rookies, and I know they probably got mad, but I said, ‘Why don’t you all act like the white guys? You never see them in the paper getting high or hitting people. Why don’t you act like that?’ They all looked at me crazy.”
It should be noted that fullback Bruce Miller, who is white, had been charged days earlier by Santa Clara County prosecutors with misdemeanor vandalism for throwing his then-fiancee’s phone in an argument; Miller later resolved the case by pleading no contest to disturbing the peace.
“I just did it for the shock value of it,” Haley said of his May speech. “… The hardest thing is these guys, they have an attention span of a 5-year-old. I’m not the most gentle and kind person to sit there and deal with that crap. I’m a little more confrontational. I think I got my point across.”
This year, Jerome Bettis, Tim Brown, Charles Haley, Bill Polian, Junior Seau, Will Shields, Mick Tingelhoff and Ron Wolf will be enshrined in the Hall of Fame. The family of Junior Seau was recetly told that they will not be able to speak live in Canton because Seau is being honored posthumously. However, after Haley’s comments and the BS nature of the NFL and political correctness these days, what them take away Charles speaking privileges as well. The NFL commissioner Roger Goodell can’t fine Haley or ban him from any games, maybe instead he will disconnect his microphone on induction day.
FSU’s Dalvin Cook Charged with Battery After Punching a Woman Several Times Outside a Tallahassee Bar Clyde’s & Costello’s (Update: Suspended from Team)
SEMINOLES CRIMINALS BACK IN THE NEWS … HEY FSU, SAY GOODBYE TO DALVIN COOK.
Thus life continues at FSU … Florida State running back Dalvin Cook has been charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly punching a woman several times outside of a downtown Tallahassee bar June 23. The 19 year old sophomore Cook has been suspended indefinitely from the FSU football team. Cook, was FSU’s starting running back who rushed for more than 1,000 yards as a freshman last season. According to accounts, the incident occurred outside of Clyde’s & Costello’s after it closed at 2 AM, when a 21 year old female refused to give her phone number to an FSU football player. The individual was not Dalvin Cook. However, Cook was identified out of a lineup as the person who repeatedly punched the woman and gave her a bloody lip.
Read the Court Documents HERE.
What the hell is going on at FSU and better yet, more to the point, the FSU football team. Coach Jimbo Fisher should be ashamed of himself and probably fired. What are you running, a football program or a gang? The obvious thing that should be pointed out that jumps off the table is Cook is 19. Last time I checked the drinking age was still 21 in Florida. But in Tallahassee, the drinking age for FSU football players is whatever. Second, this incident and the one with QB De’Andre Johnson, who has now been dismissed from the team, happened one day apart. ONE DAY!!!
There is no way in hell that Dalvin Cook can remain on this team and Jimbo claim he gives a damn about woman and domestic violence. What does anyone expect the culture to be at FSU when Fisher, the University president and the Alumni all looked the other way with Jameis Winston?
Florida State running back Dalvin Cook turned himself into Leon County Jail Friday night hours after the State Attorney’s Office charged him with misdemeanor battery for allegedly punching a woman several times outside of a downtown Tallahassee bar June 23.
Cook, 19, was suspended indefinitely from the football team Friday afternoon.
“It is important to me that our fans and the public be aware that I do not tolerate the type of behavior that was captured on video and that was most recently alleged,” FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said in a statement released early Friday evening.
“We will do better. I will not tolerate anything less.”
The 21-year-old woman, who is not an FSU student, and a friend were speaking with a group of five to seven football players outside of Clyde’s & Costello’s after it closed at 2 a.m. when she refused to give her phone number to an FSU football player not named in court records.
Cook, a sophomore, came over originally trying to calm the situation down, court records say. At another point FSU sophomore wide receiver Travis Rudolph also joined the argument.
The woman pushed Rudolph and he did not react other than to continue arguing. Cook asked if she’d pushed Rudolph and punched the woman after she replied, knocking her into a parked car.
Cook continued to swing at her, hitting her at least one other time as he was being restrained. The blow knocked her to the ground. The group of football players then walked away, court records say.
The woman had a bloody lip and dirt on her knee and was intoxicated, police noted in court records.
Check this out, Fisher says this type of behavior wont be tolerated, yet as long as they could win a National Championship, rape meant nothing. He also goes on to say that they spend a great deal of time educating their student athletes about appropriate behavior. HAHAHA. You might want to reevaluate that Jimbo. Seems they are getting as much out of those lessons as they are the classes they don’t attend.
VIDEO of discussion of the incident from ESPN
“Recent events at Florida State University involving members of my football team have brought a lot of attention to the school and program. It is important to me that our fans and the public be aware that I do not tolerate the type of behavior that was captured on video and that was most recently alleged,” Fisher said in a statement Friday. “We spend a good deal of time educating our student-athletes about appropriate behavior and their responsibilities as representatives of Florida State. The majority of our players are exemplary, but clearly we must place an even stronger emphasis on this, and I personally promise we will.
“I remain committed to educating our young men and holding them accountable for their actions.”
In a separate statement, FSU president John Thrasher said he was “extremely disappointed” to hear about the allegations, calling them “especially disheartening” considering they came just days after Johnson’s dismissal.
“I have asked Coach Fisher and Athletics Director Stan Wilcox to develop a plan to help our student-athletes understand the consequences of these kinds of actions,” Thrasher said. “This will include Coach Fisher meeting immediately with his team to reiterate, in no uncertain terms, our expectations of them. I also plan to meet with the team, and we will be asking professionals who deal with these matters, including State Attorney Willie Meggs, to speak with them.”
Banned? What the hell are 19 year old kids allowed to be in them in the first place? Maybe some one needs their liquor license revoked? Talk about putting a band-aid on a broken leg. This is a character flaw coach, not a drinking issue. Your players think they are entitled to treat people like this and obviously have no respect for woman. Maybe you might want to ban them from being around females.
After a week that any football coach would not wish on another, where two players (one now a former player) were arrested for the horrendous action of beating on women, FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher has reportedly laid down the law with his players as to what is expected.
And for the time being, that won’t involve going out to local bars in Tallahassee.
It’s one way to solve the problem, but in the end it’s going to fall right back on the players to be the responsible ones. Fisher and his staff can’t be everywhere to insure that this action occurs, so the players have to decide how they want to represent being a member of the Florida State football program.
UPDATE II: A Culture of Violence against woman … 20 FSU athletes accused of crimes against women since 2009.
According to a report, Cook is the 20th Florida State athlete since 2009 to be accused of a crime against a woman
In June, Outside the Lines ran a report with data from 2009 to 2014 looking into criminal allegations involving football and men’s basketball players at 10 different schools.
Among the schools studied — Florida State, Florida, Auburn, Michigan State, Missouri, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Texas A&M and Wisconsin — FSU had the most cases of sexual assault, harassment or violence against women at 18 at the time of the report.
FSU Quarterback De’Andre Johnson Dismissed from Football Team after Punk Punches Woman In The Face (VIDEO)
I GUESS NOT EVEN MIGHTY FSU FOOTBALL COULD MAKE THIS QB ASSAULT GO AWAY …
Florida State University has dismissed QB De’Andre Johnson after a video was released showing the FSU football player punching a woman at a bar. Hmm, but not for the video and of course the transfer of former Notre Dame QB to FSU, what would the Seminoles have done? Bleacher Report states that FSU coach Jimbo Fisher had no choice but to give De’Andre Johnson his walking papers. Following the drama and rape charges against former FSU QB Jameis Winston, there is no way FSU could survive another QB scandal. The State Attorney’s Willie Meggs released surveillance video of Florida State University quarterback De’Andre Johnson punching a woman at a bar last month. 19 year old Johnson was charged with misdemeanor battery after viewing the footage from the West Tennessee Street bar Yiannis on June 24.
According to court records obtained by the Tallahassee Democrat, the woman suffered bruising near her left eye, swelling of the left cheek and upper lip, and a small cut near the bridge of her nose. The records also state she raised her knee into his midsection before trying to punch him.
De’Andre Johnson FSU Quarterback Punching Woman In The Face
But wait this case just got more interesting, De’Andre Johnson has hired Jose Baez as his lawyer. Yes, the same Jose Baez who represented Casey Anthony in 2011. It turns out Baez is a Florida State graduate. Of course we have the obligatory BS from the defense how this individual who punches women in the face is misunderstood and a nice guy.
“While it is clear from the video that De’Andre Johnson was not the initial aggressor, his family wants to take the lead in helping him learn and grow from this experience,” read a statement from Baez issued earlier Monday.
“He is currently participating in community service, and faith-based focused on battered women, substance abuse, and the empowerment of children. De’Andre is extremely embarrassed by this situation and would like to express his heartfelt apologies to everyone, including those who were directly affected, Coach Fisher and his teammates, the entire Florida State community, as well as his family and friends.”
Last week, Johnson was charged with misdemeanor battery stemming from the June incident, just days after Florida State suspended him for a violation of athletic department policy. He turned himself in and was released on a $500 bond, according to ESPN.
The decision to charge Johnson came after the state attorney’s office in Tallahassee, Fla., reviewed the security camera footage that captured the incident inside the bar.
UNREAL, CRIMINALS TODAY HAVE NO FEAR …
KTVU reporter Cara Liu was attacked in broad daylight as she covered the fatal shooting that took place the night before on San Francisco’s Pier 14 on the Embarcadero. In the VIDEO below you can see her startled reaction as news crews are attacked by a robber in San Francisco on July 2, 2015 on LIVE TV. The reporters were attacked and robbed on live TV.

Crews from four Bay Area television stations were reporting on a fatal shooting on San Francisco’s Pier 14 on the Embarcadero that took place Wednesday night.
A man armed with a handgun and wearing a black mask approached the crews around 6 a.m. while KTVU Fox 2 reporter Cara Liu was preparing to go live for the KTVU Morning News.
As anchor Brian Flores went to Liu’s report, she is visibly distracted and looking off camera.
Nearby, the unidentified bandit was pistol-whipping KNTV cameraman Alan Waples and his equipment was being stolen.
NECN is reporting that two people have been stabbed at Tufts University in Medford, Mass at the Delta Tau Delta frat house. Tufts officials had asked students to seek shelter and lock their doors around 5 AM Sunday while police responded to reports of an assault. The conditions of the stabbing victims are unknown. Tufts spokeswoman Kim Thurler says the victims are not affiliated with Tufts and that the incident “appears to be non-random.”. Currently, the police have no suspects in custody.
Police on the Tufts University campus in Medford, Massachusetts, are investigating an apparent stabbing, according to the university.
The incident occurred early Sunday morning at the Delta Tau Delta fraternity at 98 Professors Row, a street that runs through the campus.
According to police, two victims are being treated for stab wounds at a local hospital. Tufts says the victims are not affiliated with the university.
The suspect is at large. Police initially ordered a shelter-in-place while they conducted a search of the area, but later lifted the restriction and said that the crime was not a random act.
Tufts University is posting updates on its Twitter feed.
A shelter-in-place order has been lifted at Tufts University in Medford this morning after two people were apparently stabbed “near the campus,” the school reported on Twitter.

Daron Dylon Wint, Suspected in Quadruple Washington, D.C Murder Arrested and Charged with Murder (Update: Police Say Wint May Not Have Acted Alone)
Daron Dylon Wint was arrested by police Thursday night and charged with the quadruple murder of the Savopoulos family and their house keeper.
34 year old Daron Dylon Wint was arrested Thursday night in Northeast Washington, DC by the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force. Wint is the prime suspect in the quadruple murder of the Savopoulos family and their housekeeper. Wint was charged with first degree felony murder while armed. According to accounts, Wint was tracked to New York City; however, was ultimately taken into custody at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast Washington. Savvas Savopoulos was the CEO of American Iron Works, where Darron Dylon Wint was reported to have been a previous employee of the company.
Wint, 34, was arrested at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast Washington, Metropolitan Police said. He is charged with first degree felony murder while armed. Members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force made the arrest. He is slated to be arraigned later today.
Robert Fernandez, Commander of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, says Wint’s arrest occurred after officers trailed two vehicles leaving a Maryland hotel. The capture apparently followed a missed opportunity for an arrest.
“We tracked him up to New York City and we barely missed him,” Fernandez said.
“It was a very fluid situation. We were planning on figuring out where he was in the hotel and then taking him down. When we were approaching, we realized he was in a vehicle.”
From the NY Post domes the following, Robin Ficker, an attorney who represented Daron Dylon Wint years ago, said he did not believe Wint could “hurt a fly.” What do you say now counselor?
The massive manhunt for a suspect in the horrific murders of a Washington businessman’s family and their housekeeper ended late Thursday when police grabbed suspect Daron Dylon Wint and four associates in the nation’s capital.
“Just got him,” D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said shortly before 11:30 p.m.
The arrest capped a day that began with the revelation Wint had been identified in last week’s murders of Savvas Savopoulos, 46; his wife Amy, 47; the couple’s 10-year-old son Philip, and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, 57, by DNA left on pizza crust during what may have been an extended home invasion. Police traced Wint, a 34-year-old ex-con from Maryland, to Brooklyn, N.Y., and then back to Washington in the afternoon.
UPDATE II: Following the arrest, the Savopoulos family released a statement:
“We are thankful to law enforcement who have worked so diligently to bring about an arrest in this case. While it does not abate our pain, we hope that it begins to restore a sense of calm and security to our neighborhood and to our city. We are blessed to live in a community comprised of close circles of friends who have supported us and grieve with us.”
With a past record like this, it was only a matter of time before it escalated to murder.
Daron Dylon Wint, the man accused of slaying a wealthy family and a housekeeper inside their D.C. mansion, once bragged he was “good with a knife” and “not afraid of the police,” according to court records.
Wint, who was captured after a massive manhunt Thursday night, boasted about his ability to murder “easily” and has a pattern of alleged violence, records show.
He reportedly bragged while threatening to kill a woman and her infant daughter after he went to a nightclub with her in 2010, according to records.
“I’m going to come over there and kill you, your daughter and friends,” Wint told that woman, according to records. “The defendant advised he was good with a knife and could kill them easily and was not afraid of the police,” a detective said.
According to the Washington Post, Wint, who “became very violent,” threatened another woman and her family that “he will drop us one by one” over a parking dispute.
Again in 2010, Wint was arrested for carrying a 2-foot-long machete and a BB pistol outside the headquarters of American Iron Works, the company owned by Savvas Savopoulos.
- In 2005, Wint was ordered to stay away from his father, stepmother and younger sister after allegedly threatening to shoot them.
- His friends weren’t immune from his rages either; Wint punched and groped a former acquaintance and “drinking buddy” at the bar where she worked, alleged victim Jacinta Council told the Post. She eventually dropped the charged.
- In 2006, he punched a housemate during a fight over loud music.
- In 2006, he was arrested for stabbing a man.
- Wint was arrested for assault charges at least three times in the late 2000s.
D.C. Police believe more than one person may have been involved in the gruesome slayings of the Savopoulos family and their housekeeper, and said the victims were held captive beginning the evening before they were killed.
The four were slain the afternoon of May 14, according to new documents filed in D.C. Superior Court, soon after an employee of Savvas Savopoulos dropped off $40,000 in cash at the home.
Police ID Suspect Daron Dylon Wint in Quadruple DC Murder of Savvas Savopoulos, Amy Savopoulos, Philip Savopoulos & Veralicia Figueroa Through Pizza Crust DNA
HEINOUS CRIME SUSPECT ID’D …
The Washington, DC police have identified a suspect in the heinous quadruple murders of Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy Savopoulos, their son Philip Savopoulos and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa. According to DC police, the suspects name is 34 year old Daron Dylon Wint. He is charged with first-degree murder while armed. As per reports, the police linked Wint to the murder scene by analyzing DNA from the crust of a Domino’s pizza that had been ordered to the house on the night of May 13. The man hunt is on for this individual who has a long criminal rap sheet. This sick SOB tortured, beat, murdered and then set the home on fire. During all of this, he ordered a Dominoes pizza. Can you say sociopath?
Police in Washington, D.C., issued an arrest warrant late Wednesday for a suspect in the murder of a corporate executive, his wife, their 10-year-old son, and a family housekeeper in their home last week.
The suspect is named as 34-year-old Daron Dylon Wint. He is charged with first-degree murder while armed. Police told the Washington Post that they did not know his whereabouts.
WTTG reported late Wednesday that police were seen outside a home in Lanham, Md., where they believe Wint lives with his father. The station reported that Wint has an extensive criminal history that includes traffic violations and charges for domestic violence, burglary and assault.
Savvas Savopoulos, 46; Amy Savopoulos, 47; their son, Philip; and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, 57, were found dead on the second floor of their burning home in northwest Washington May 14. The home is located in an upscale area just north of Vice President Joe Biden’s official residence on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory.
The Post reported, citing three law enforcement officials close to the investigation, that police linked Wint to the murder scene by analyzing DNA from the crust of a Domino’s pizza that had been ordered to the house on the night of May 13. The delivery man told WTTG that he delivered two pizzas to the house and was paid with cash left in an envelope outside the front door.
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS KILLER?
Police believe Wint and possibly other assailants held the family captive overnight last Wednesday in the home, eventually torturing them until their deaths. But while holding the family in terror, they took time late Wednesday night to order a Domino’s pizza online, with instructions that it be left outside. The pizza may have been their undoing. Police reportedly recovered Wint’s DNA on the leftover crusts from the pizza.
“What they’ll find in this person is that he’s very psychopathic,” former FBI profiler Mary Ellen O’Toole said.
She said the ordering of pizza while holing captives in the state of terror fits the pattern of a diagnosable psychopath; someone without remorse.
“Their ability to do this, order a pizza, you have to imagine that the victims are crying, they’re scared, they may even be having a physical reaction, these offenders continue to do what they’re doing,” O’Toole said.
Hours before the Savopoulos family home went up in flames, an assistant to Washington businessman Savvas Savopoulos was instructed to drop off a package carrying $40,000 and to leave the money outside.
9 Dead in Rival Motorcycle Gang Fight Shootout at Twin Peaks in Waco, TX (VIDEO) (Update: 3 of the 5 Motorcycle Gangs ID’d as the Bandidos, Cossacks & Scimitars)(Update: 192 Arrested)
THANKFULLY, NO POLICE OR CIVILIANS WERE INJURED IN THE SHOOTOUT …
As per the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office, there are 9 dead and 18 injured following a shootout between rival motorcycle gangs in Waco, Texas. The shooting took place Sunday afternoon just after 12 in the Twin Peaks restaurant located in the Central Texas Market Place. According to accounts, the fight first started inside the restaurant and spilled into the parking lot where the fight quickly escalated from fists and feet to chains, clubs and knives, then to gunfire. In the aftermath of the chaos, the police recovered more than 100 weapons from the scene. Trooper D.L. Wilson said officers arrested three men near the Cabella’s store after they seized their weapons. According to CNN, the fight may have started over a parking space. When asked if the police knew what the three gangs were that took part in the shooting, Sergeant Swanton said, “We do, but we’re not going to give them the privilege at this point of putting their names out there.” However, according to this one report, at least five were present and some of the gangs were fighting as allies. Police estimate that between 150-200 gang members were involved.
Rival motorcycle gangs turned a local restaurant into a shooting gallery Sunday afternoon and when the gunfire was over, nine people were dead and 17 were injured.
Waco police Sunday afternoon, assisted by Department of Public Safety troopers, police officers from several cities and deputies from the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office were surrounding the Twin Peaks Restaurant, in the Central Texas Market Place after several people were reported shot during a rival motorcycle gang fight, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.
Police initially said three gangs were involved, but later said factions from at least five gangs took part in the melee.
Police and troopers were in the parking lot trying to secure the area and protect citizens when a fight broke out inside the restaurant and spilled into the parking lot.
Swanton said the fight quickly escalated from fists and feet to chains, clubs and knives, then to gunfire.
Gang members were shooting at each other and officers at the scene fired their weapons, as well, Swanton said.
Other patrons in Twin Peaks and some employees locked themselves in a freezer to escape the fight.
The scene at the Market Place between Don Carlos and Twin Peaks was absolute chaos, Swanton said.
“It is one of the most violent scene I’ve seen in my 34 years as a police officer in Waco,” Swanton said.
Swanton said officers recovered more than 100 weapons from the scene and there were several vehicles that had bullet holes in them.
Swanton said no officers and no civilians were injured.
Authorities had anticipated trouble and pre-positioned officers; however, it appears that the establishment wanted the business rather than working with the police. In a post shooting presser, District Attorney Abel Reyna said that trouble at Twin Peaks among rival bikers had been brewing for some time. Reyna said local police were on heightened alert in anticipation of trouble on Thursday nights, when Twin Peaks hosts a Biker Night. Twin Peaks might want to rethink that marketing plan.
“There were at least three rival gang groups here this morning for whatever reason. As they were here, we had officers on scene. We expected issues,” said Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton, a police spokesman. He later said there were at least five gangs.
Are these people friggin insane, Bikers Night … there is a recipe for disaster. Hell, these folks didn’t even wait for Thursday, they decided to have a shootout on the Sabbath. This Twin Peaks in Waco advertizes Biker night as “Get revved up and ready to go at Twin Peaks bike night.” Or shot. What’s Wednesday, Crips and Bloods night? Hey, maybe they can have Skin head Saturday where all of a white supremacist and antisemitic groups get two for 1 beers? Have I been absurd enough? It is hard to believe that Twin Peaks corporate would allow this to go forward. This is not a local strip club catering to bikers, its a national chain.
The authorities made little effort on Sunday to conceal their frustration with the restaurant’s managers, who they said had previously been uncooperative in dealing with the Police Department’s security concerns about biker gatherings there.
“We have attempted to work with the local management of Twin Peaks to no avail,” Sergeant Swanton said. “They have continued to allow these bikers to gather here, and this is the culmination of what has occurred.” He added: “What happened here today could have been avoided if we had had management at a local establishment listen to their police department and assist us. They failed to do that.”
As recently as last week, the restaurant advertised “Bike Night” on Thursdays and promised “beers, bites and bikes at the hottest place in town!”
In a statement from Twin Peaks Restaurant chain:
A spokesman for the Twin Peaks Restaurant chain emphasized that the shooting had occurred outside the restaurant but declined to provide details about the police security concerns.
“We were shocked by the shootings that took place in the parking lot of our franchised restaurant in Waco and are fully reviewing all the circumstances surrounding it,” the spokesman, Rick Van Warner, said. “We are thankful no employees, guests or police were injured in this senseless violence outside the restaurant, and our sympathies are with the families of those killed.”
There were 5 motorcycle gangs involved in the shooting. Two of them at the heart of the trouble were the rival gangs, the Cossacks and the Bandidos. The third motorcycle gang involved in the shooting was the Scimitars Motorcycle Club, who are aligned with the Cossacks Motorcycle Club against the Bandidos. The other two motorcycle gangs have yet to be identified.
At least two of the gangs were trying to do some recruiting in the area Sunday, and Twin Peaks was a known place for that kind of activity, Swanton said. Multiple law enforcement sources confirmed that the Bandidos and Cossacks biker gangs were at the center of the incident.
Some 192 people have been arrested and charged with engaging in organized crime in connection to the deadly shooting that broke out between five biker gangs at a Twin Peaks in Waco. Under a Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission mandate, the restaurant is shut down for the next seven days as the investigation continues early Monday morning into the shooting that left nine people dead and at least 18 people injured — an investigation that has included biker gang death threats made against uniformed officers.
“Threats have been made to kill our uniformed officers,” said Waco Police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton early Monday morning, who added that the people arrested could be looking at capital murder charges. “This was a true gang fight.”
