Longview police answering a disturbance call make the arrest of a documented Longview gang member on fire arm possession charges.

Longview police arrested 18-year-old Luis Retana at a disturbance call on Jane Street Monday night.

Police say Retana is a member of "Puros Carnales", a Longview street gang.

A search of his vehicle revealed a loaded .22-caliber revolver.

He told police that he was going to talk to someone about a drive-by shooting.

Retana was released from jail Tuesday on $1000, after being charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon.
