Four validated gang members were arrested Wednesday night and three of them could be facing federal charges.
Chattanooga police responded to Brainerd Road on a report of a possible shooting suspect being in the area.
CPD spokeswoman Elisa Myzal says when officers arrived at the scene, they found James Geter in possession of a loaded handgun and marijuana.
Myzal says after a search, police found three other validated gang members; Michael Jones, Dartangan Rollins and Brandon Rakestraw.
Investigators believe the arrests prevented potential violence last night and provided additional leads to follow in other gang-related violent crime.
