Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib and his brother are being investigated by police for an alleged aggravated assault after an incident Wednesday morning at a Dallas nightclub.

According to Dallas TV station WFAA, Talib and his brother were allegedly involved in an altercation while at Club Luxx and a gun was fired.

The Broncos are aware of the incident.

“We have been in touch with Aqib regarding these reports and will continue to monitor this situation,” Broncos vice president of public relations Patrick Smyth told the Denver Post.

Talib and his brother were interviewed at the scene of a downtown nightclub and allowed to leave, according to WFFA. The cars they were driving were towed.

Talib, 29, is a seven-year veteran of the NFL. He began his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008 before playing for the New England Patriots.

Talib, who grew up in the Dallas area, signed a six-year, $57 million contract with the Broncos in 2014 and made the Pro Bowl last season. He had 64 tackles, one sack and four interceptions, including returning two for touchdowns.
