SAN ANTONIO – A group of teenagers and one man were arrested after they were found with multiple firearms while attempting to make a “rap video,” according to San Antonio police.

At 7:30 p.m. Saturday, officers responded to the 100 block of Dresden after they received multiple calls of disturbances with a gun, said SAPD.

According to police, callers claimed 13 teens were waving around multiple firearms, including a long gun, in an area behind an apartment complex.

Upon arrival, officers found a large group of teenagers, several holding firearms. Officers announced themselves and asked the group to drop the guns and get on the ground, said SAPD.

Although most complied, some of the individuals took off on foot. Police said nine people in total were detained, three of which were released at the scene.

Several of the detained individuals were discovered to have outstanding warrants, said SAPD.

Police said four firearms were recovered, including three handguns and an AR-style pistol.

During the investigation, officers learned that the group was attempting to make a “rap video.”

Surveillance video helped police identify which individuals were in possession of each firearm recovered, said SAPD.

According to SAPD, three 19-year-olds, two 18-years-olds, and one 28-year-old were arrested.
