      Gunfire, seizure leads to federal investigation in Brownsville

      Six people are behind bars in Brownsville where police said they fired a gun inside city limits but the story doesn TMt end there.

      Brownsville police told Action 4 News that they arrested five men and one woman early this morning on Western Boulevard:

      Javier Gonzalez, 36 Luis Medrano, 25 Basilio Gomez, 23 Roberto Razo, 29 Alejandro Castaon-Garcia, 21 Alma Acosta, 24

      Each of them were charged with discharging a weapon within city limits.

      Investigators say it happened near a home on the 200 block of Western Boulevard.

      But the investigation may not end there.

      Police say the six were in a silver-colored Chevy Equinox where officers found some suspicious inventory inside.

      While they are not disclosing what that inventory was, they say it could lead to more charges.

      Brownsville police said a federal agency is now looking into this investigation.
