(CNN) — A grand jury in Texas has indicted 106 people in connection with the deadly May shootout between bikers at a strip mall restaurant parking lot, McLennan County Criminal District Attorney Abel Reyna said Tuesday.

The defendants are accused of “engaging in organized criminal activity with the underlying offense being aggravated assault and murder,” Reyna said.

Nine people were killed May 17 at the now-closed Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco and 18 others were hospitalized. A total of 177 bikers were arrested. Reyna told reporters the other 71 cases had yet to be presented to the grand jury.

“They will be presented at a later date,” he said, without specifying a time frame.

Authorities have said the shootout began after an uninvited biker gang showed up at the restaurant, where a coalition of motorcycle groups had reserved the outdoor bar area.

Police recovered 480 weapons: 151 guns, along with assorted knives, brass knuckles, batons, hammers, and the bikers’ blunt objects of choice — padlocks wrapped in bandanas.
