Video shows footage, crime-scene photos of Waco melee

(Waco Tribune) Despite months of failed media attempts to obtain video footage and crime scene photos of the May 17 Twin Peaks shootout that killed nine men and injured 20 others, CNN released video evidence Thursday.

The footage is consistent with early police descriptions of weapons hidden between sacks of flour and bags of tortilla chips. They were allegedly in vehicles, tucked in benches, strewn across the floor, in kitchen stoves, thrown into trashcans and stuffed in toilets.

Among the weapons and blood spatters were half-eaten burgers, beer bottles held in gang-symbol koozies and half-drunk margaritas.

CNN’s video footage shows men clad in Cossacks and Bandidos colors hiding under tables, running, covered in blood, holding and firing guns during the melee.
