Austin police don't expect retribution at biker rally
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Austin police say they have found no credible intelligence indicating there will be any gang retribution for the deadly biker shooting in Waco at the upcoming Republic of Texas Biker Rally.
On May 17, nine people were killed and 18 people were injured during a shootout at a Waco restaurant.
Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said leading up to this weekend's event, authorities have contacted biker gang leaders to assure nothing will happen. Austin gang unit officers will be at the rally, which is expected to draw more than 40,000 bikers.
Authorities say plain clothes officers will also be at the rally, as well as downtown and in bars known to be frequented by bikers.
The rally's president, Jerry Braggs, said he is pleased with and endorses police plans.
