That’s one gnarly biker fight. Nine people dead, while bystanders were forced to hide in the freezers of the restaurant.
Nine people have been killed and 18 hospitalized in a shoot-out between rival biker gangs in a suburban Texas restaurant – and their allies across the state are flocking to join their ranks, police say.
