Dozens of bikers have been indicted in last year's deadly shootout between two rival biker gangs in Texas that left nine people dead.

A grand jury Wednesday indicted 48 more bikers, bringing to 154 the number of people facing felony charges for the melee that also injured 20 others.

Prosecutors said all the bikers are charged with engaging in organized criminal activity and could face 15 years to life in prison if convicted.

A biker gathering at the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas, last May turned bloody after a confrontation between the Bandidos and Cossacks biker clubs became chaotic and bloody, as police swarmed into the gunfire and dozens of bikers ran for cover.
