DALLAS -- Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib and his brother are under investigation in an aggravated assault case at a Dallas nightclub, the Dallas Police Department said Wednesday.

Police say they were called about 2:10 a.m. to the 700 block of North Pearl Street of an active shooter on foot. The person who called 911 told police there was a disturbance among three black males, and said he and security tried to escort the men out of the bar.

The complainant said as they reached the front of the bar, someone produced a gun and pointed it at him. The complainant closed the door and took cover inside the bar. Witnesses outside said they saw a black male fire a round into the air, causing panic.

All of those involved left the bar and the investigation is continuing, police said.

Police say the vehicles Talib and his brother were driving were towed and that evidence is still being gathered.

Talib was drafted in the first round (No. 20 overall) in 2008 by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He then played for the New England Patriots before joining the Broncos last season as a free agent.

"We have been in touch with Aqib Talib regarding these reports and will continue to monitor the situation," Broncos Vice President of Public Relations Patrick Smyth said.
