Most bikers charged in Waco shooting taken off GPS monitors

Most bikers charged in Waco shooting taken off GPS monitors

WACO, Texas (AP) - Only a few of the people arrested in the May biker shooting outside a Waco Twin Peaks restaurant remain under ankle monitoring, and none remain in jail.

The Waco Tribune-Herald reports that all but 22 of the 135 people originally ordered to wear ankle monitors still have them. The others have been able to amend their bonds in agreements between their lawyers and McLennan County prosecutors.

After initially locking up more than 170 people in connection with the May 17 incident, McLennan prosecutors have not charged anyone with the shooting deaths of nine people. At least 20 others were hurt.

None of the bikers who had ankle monitors committed serious violations leading to their returning to jail.

McLennan prosecutors did not return messages from the newspaper seeking comment.
