Shoppers can retrieve cars after Sunday's shooting

WACO, TX (KXXV) - On Wednesday, some people who parked near Twin Peaks on Sunday were able to recover their vehicles.

Those who parked in the crime scene could not take away their cars since the shooting because police were still investigating.

Veronica Voss, a shopper who arrived on the scene after it happened, said she just parked at the wrong place at the wrong time. She did not have her car for three days because it was parked at the edge of the crime scene.

"It has been kind of hectic because I don't have another car and I've had to have friends come take me places, so it has been kind of rough. I'm just glad now that I have my car," said Voss.

Voss was able to pick up her car on Thursday where she left it on Sunday.

However, at least 80 cars and trucks and 135 motorcycles were towed away from the scene and taken to a secure impound. The vehicles towed for safekeeping will be released as quickly as police are able to.

Some of the vehicles will be kept as evidence, which means they will remain in police custody until the case goes to trial and it is complete.

Not everyone will be required to pay an impounding fee.

“If someone comes up and says 'hey I was a customer there innocent', and we can verify that, we have the ability to waive those fees and give innocent people their vehicles back,” Waco Police spokesman Sgt. Patrick Swanton said.

Drivers are advised to contact Waco Police at 254-750-7500 if they can't find their car where they parked it on Sunday. Drivers will need to show the car's insurance when they go to the police headquarters.

Drivers can ask the police department to be notified when their cars will be released.
