EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Two brothers are in custody Wednesday after an alleged aggravated assault involving rifles in an East El Paso neighborhood.

El Paso Police Department (EPPD) Officers from the Pebble Hills Regional Command Center responded to a ‘subject with a gun’ call along the 12100 block of Jose Cisneros. As officers were on the way, the call was changed to ‘shots fired.’

The preliminary investigation determined that both Damian and Jaime drove up to the address on Jose Cisneros, where the victim was in the residence’s front yard.

Both brothers confronted the victim and threatened him by pointing the rifles at the victim. The victim, along with other individuals, ran for safety inside a residence.
