More than 150 people will be charged the biker shoot-out that claimed 9 lives at a Waco, Texas, restaurant on Sunday.

Police said on Facebook Monday that 192 individuals face charges of engaging in organized crime, though they later revised that figure down to 170, according to The Chicago Tribune.

“They are being booked and processed at this time,” authorities wrote. “McLennan County District Attorney is involved in our investigation and has been assisting us throughout the night.”

Meanwhile, the Twin Peaks restaurant where the shoot-out took place will be closed for another seven days, the Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission announced Monday.

“This is not a punitive action on TABC’s part but done due to the ongoing danger it presents to our community,” police wrote. “They are conducting a parallel investigation and further action may be forthcoming.”

The gunfight broke out at just after noon on Sunday. In addition to the nine dead, 18 others were injured. Police said they expect to recover close to 100 weapons from the scene.

“This is one of the worst gunfights we’ve ever had in the city limits,” Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said. “They started shooting at our officers.”
