The New Braunfels Police Department is investigating a disturbance in the Dove Crossing area in which several gunshots were reportedly fired. 

“The scene on County Line Road is secure and there is no danger to those in the area,” the department posted on its Facebook page around 3:45 p.m. “The scene will remain closed while NBPD detectives investigate.”

At 4 p.m., NBPD reported West County Line Road, between Dove Crossing Drive and Chartwell Avenue, is currently closed for the investigation. Traffic is being diverted to side streets in that area. 

“Please expect delays and be patient with other drivers due to the delays,” its post said.

Several witnesses claimed hearing at least five gunshots originating near Dove Crossing and County Line Road, with several police vehicles and emergency units on the opposite side, the back entrance to Fischer Park.

“We’re out there and we’re investigating,” NBPD communications coordinator David Ferguson said. “There were shots fired and the whole area is shut down. Everything is safe and secure – it’s just a scene we’re investigating.”
