On Thursday, police released a 19-page collection of reports from the Twin Peaks shootings that may shed new light on the chaos in the first few minutes when gunfire erupted, along with details on some of the arrests.
The documents outline the radio traffic as the shootings began and police rushed to the scene. Keep in mind they are initial impressions from officers and some items may not have been confirmed, but they give us an idea how quickly the scene unfolded.
The initial police comments came in at 12:25 p.m. that day shots were fired, and 75 seconds later, an officer said subjects were still shooting. Dispatchers immediately requested help from Robinson PD, sheriff's deputies and DPS Troopers.
Eleven seconds later, at 12:27:21, an officer said "at least two down at Don Carlos".
Here are some of the subsequent comments from officers on the scene in a timeline:

The log released Thursday ends at this point. The 19 pages include information on some of those arrested that day not on the Twin Peaks grounds, including a woman named Cara Sivert, who told police conflicting stories when they stopped her blue Jeep as she wandered through the Central Texas Marketplace parking lot.
She eventually told police she was trying to pick up her boyfriend, biker Sergio Reyes, who was a member of "Desagret Gracios," a support biker club for the Bandidos. Sivert was arrested for allegedly having drugs in her vehicle.
Police also arrested three biker club members who were sitting just outside the media area at the scene, one of whom had a Viper Tech flashlight with a built-in taser attached to it.
We also learned three bikers from the Austin area, Jim Albert Harris, Drew David King, and Juan Carlos Garcia, were sitting in a grassy area in front of Cabela's when they were arrested.
Each was wearing a black leather vest with the club name "Grim Guardian, Rocker" on the back top patch and in the center a round patch with the symbol of half of a skull on one side and half of a Viking helmet on the other. There was a small patch "MC" standing for motorcycle club and a bottom rocker patch stating the words "Slaughter Creek", indicating the city they were from.
Harris, King and Garcia were the three bikers who originally had a lower bond and were released, then re-arrested in Austin on a higher bond for a few days before bonding out again.
The documents released Thursday also confirm the two main biker clubs involved were the Bandidos and the Cossacks, which has been widely reported in the weeks after the shootings.
The information was cleared by the Waco city attorney's office to be released, and police hope more details on what happened inside and just outside that restaurant that day will be coming out soon as the investigation progresses.
