Police tell News 3 they are trying to identify the suspects in a shooting Sunday night in Brenham.

"It's just a case with a lot of twists and turns,” said Cpl. Chris Jackson with the Brenham Police Department.

Investigators say a family party at a house on the 300 block of Rippetoe Street near the center of the city turned violent Sunday night.

Police say three men between the ages of 32 and 48 were at the party. Investigators say one man was shot and the other two had wounds from some type of struggle. All are out of the hospital, but the suspects haven't been arrested.

"Pending some evidence that was collected that has been sent off to the DPS lab in Austin, we will have a better idea of who the shooters were based on that information,” said Jackson.

Police say they believe the suspects are two brothers in their 40s.

They say a shotgun and handgun were used. Investigators say one of the confusing parts of the case is that they believe one of the victims might be a suspect.

"There was close to 50-100 people who were on location at this particular party, so as you can imagine, there were people everywhere,” Jackson said.

Police are in the process of interviewing witnesses, victims and the suspects. They hope to have the suspects in custody soon so the street can go back to being part of a quiet neighborhood.

Police tell News 3 the suspects would face felony charges for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
