Twin Peaks Franchisee: After watching surveillance, no violence inside restaurant

WACO, TX (KXXV) - The franchisee of the Waco Twin Peaks says after looking at surveillance video, there was no violence that started inside the restaurant.

The Associated Press took a look at the video and reports that footage shows people seeking safety inside the building.

The franchise has now given the video to law enforcement. They say they're working with police closely as the investigation continues. Twin Peaks corporate has already announced it is revoking the Waco restaurant's franchise agreement.

Here is the statement from the Twin Peaks Waco franchisee:

"Based on restaurant security camera video footage, what happened inside the restaurant was that people sought safety inside, where they assisted each other and came to the aid of patrons, staff and management. In addition, based on the same footage, no violence started inside the restaurant.

We have turned over restaurant security camera footage from that day to law enforcement.

We continue to be very concerned for the safety and security of everyone involved, including our patrons, staff, management, and law enforcement. We want to reiterate that we are horrified by this violence and express our deepest sympathy to all those impacted by it. We have set up a process for counseling for our employees.

We remain committed to working with and fully cooperating with law enforcement in their investigation. We appreciate all law enforcement efforts to bring the perpetrators to justice, and we recognize that local police put their lives on the line to protect our patrons and staff. For that we are truly grateful.

We are in the process of gathering additional facts, and urge that people avoid rushing to judgment before those facts are fully known."
