Detectives will continue processing crime scene outside Twin Peaks Monday into Tuesday

WACO, TX (KXXV) - On Monday night, police remained at the crime scene outside Twin Peaks where nine people died and 18 were hospitalized, and police say  detectives will continue processing the scene until Tuesday morning.

Police removed motorcycles from the scene and vehicles towed away were escorted to the police impound lot where they will be secured.

Meanwhile, 170 bike gang members are behind bars each held on a $1 million bond. Each is charged with engaging in organized criminal activity in relation to a capital murder case.

The nine bodies have been sent to Dallas for an autopsy.

One national TV network reported that preliminary information showed four of the men were killed by police gunfire. However, Waco PD said that information did not come from them.

"There is an organization that has released information indicating they know how many individuals were shot at the hands of officers. I will tell you that information is not confirmed from us. The autopsies have not been completed and that information may very likely be incorrect and it's not coming from me or the Waco Police Department,” said Waco police Sgt. Patrick Swanton.

The names of the deceased have not been released because police are still in the process of notifying family members.

Police expect to finish processing the scene by Wednesday morning. The businesses near Twin Peaks will remain closed until further notice.
