WACO, TX (KXXV) - Police have arrested nearly 200 suspected biker gang members and booked them into the McLennan County Jail following the shooting that killed nine people outside Twin Peaks in Waco.

Waco PD Sgt. Patrick Swanton says approximately 170 have been arrested and are charged with engaging in organized criminal activity in relation to this capital murder case. Those being booked in Monday in relation to this case are being held on $1 million bond.

On Sunday, Waco PD asked News Channel to withhold the location where the detained bikers were being questioned. Officers released that information on Monday when the Waco Convention Center in downtown Waco was no longer being used as a processing facility.

Some businesses in the Central Texas Marketplace will remain closed Monday. Stores between Cabela's and Best Buy in Central Texas Marketplace will be closed Monday as the investigation continues. Stores from Ashley's Furniture to Kohl's will be open.

Waco Transit has said buses are not running to Providence Hospital or Central Texas Marketplace at this time.

The TABC had implemented a summary suspension at Twin Peaks for 7 days. They had decided to suspend Twin Peaks' liquor license as they conducted their own investigation. Further action could be coming. Waco PD Sgt. Patrick Swanton says Twin Peaks could still be open to serve food, but police hope they will use this as a "cooling off" period and remain closed.

Police still consider the shooting scene active and are still investigating and processing the scene. Police say their investigation will continue throughout the day Monday as they work to clear and process bullets, weapons, and other evidence that is still there.

All nine of the deceased have been sent to the morgue for autopsy.

Police say there were hundreds of vehicles, both bikes and cars, are involved. The process of towing them away should start Monday afternoon.
