Brownwood police are investigating an incident in which a man chased a male family member after an argument and fired a shot that struck the victim’s vehicle.
    According to an email from Brownwood police:
    Police responded at 6:30 p.m. Monday to the 1600 block of Good Shepherd on a report of shots fired.
    Officers learned a telephone argument between two family members escalated when one confronted the other at an apartment. Both argued until one displayed a handgun and chased the other outside.
    As the victim ran to his vehicle, the suspect fired a shot from a handgun, striking the vehicle. Everyone involved in the incident fled just prior to officers’  arrival.  No one was reported injured.
    The investigation remains ongoing.

Early arrests
    In an unrelated incident, a driver said he and his passenger had been smoking marijuana — but only in Colorado, where they’d just come from.
    That’s what Jonathan Livermore, 20, of Colorado Springs, Colo. told Early officer Andres Contreras after Contreras stopped their vehicle Monday in the 900 block of Early Boulevard for a traffic violation, Early police said.
    Officers found 5.6 ounces of marijuana in the vehicle and  arrested Livermore, 20, and Audrey Santini, 18, also of Colorado Springs, on felony charges of possession of marijuana in a drug free zone, police and Brown County Jail records state.
    According to an email from Early police:
    Contreras smelled marijuana as he approached the vehicle following the traffic stop and asked the two occupants if they’d been smoking. Contreras conducted a probable cause search and located a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle, as well as drug paraphernalia.
    Contreras also located a locked compartment that the driver refused to open. Detective Billy Bloom arrived, then drew up a search warrant for the vehicle. After Justice of the Peace Jim Cavanaugh signed the search warrant, officers opened the compartment and located additional marijuana, a glass pipe, digital scales, a jar labeled vitamin supplement with pills believed to be made form marijuana and other miscellaneous items.
    Livermore and Santini, who are currently staying in Brownwood, were placed under arrest.
    In another unrelated incident, Early police released details of a domestic disturbance Sunday that led to the arrest of a man named  Joe Cheyne, 35, on a felony assault charge.
    According to police: Officer Michelle Sheedy received a call of a domestic disturbance at a local motel after occupants of neighboring rooms heard a woman screaming for help.
    As officers approached the room, they heard screaming. Officers entered and located a male assaulting a female. Three children, ages 1, 8 and 9, were also present.
     The victim had obvious injuries where the male had grabbed her around the neck and attempted to strangle her. The male was placed under arrest. An emergency protective order was requested and CPS was notified.
