A chaotic scene recently erupted in a San Antonio movie theater parking lot when a gunman began shooting, hitting and wounding an unidentified male before being shot by an officer, Sheriff’s officials said.

According to a Bexar County sheriff’s spokesman, the incident started around 9:30 p.m. Sunday when the gunman fired several shots inside a restaurant. No one knows exactly yet what prompted the man to open fire.

Brothers Sentenced to Federal Prison for Drug and Gun Smuggling

Two South Texas brothers were sentenced to federal prison by a McAllen federal judge after pleading guilty to charges in a gun and drug smuggling case. Jose Luis Tovar was given a 17½ year sentence after he pleaded guilty to weapons charges. His brother, Jerry Tovar, on the other hand, received 11 years and three months for weapons charges and drug conspiracy.

Both brothers confessed their actions to DEA agents who were working undercover.

Additionally, the investigation implicated two Duval County sheriff’s deputies, and both pleaded guilty to drug charges when they admitted planning to use a police vehicle to smuggle cocaine acquired from the Tovar brothers.

Both deputies could face life imprisonment.

The consequences of a drug or weapons conviction could have devastating effects on a person’s life, so if you have been accused of either of these crimes, you should not leave your defense to chance.
