WACO, Texas (KWTX) Austin-based Louisiana Crab Shack plans to open a restaurant this summer in the Twin Peaks building in the Central Texas Marketplace in Waco where a shootout between bikers and law enforcement officers in 2015 left nine dead and more than 20 wounded, real estate developer Turner-Behringer, confirmed Tuesday.

According to its website, Louisiana Crab Shack is expanding rapidly from a single restaurant to four in Austin in addition to the Waco restaurant.

Twin Peaks closed after the May, 17, 2015 shootout and remained vacant until March 2018, when an Arizona-based chain opened a Scotty’s Brewhouse in the building.

The chain announced in December 2018 it was closing the restaurant after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
