Members of the police department's Gang and Violent Crimes Unit converged on the house about 9 p.m. They were following up on complaints of gunfire, intimidation, gang and drug activity at the residence.

Officers said they found an assault rifle, pistol, magazines for various handguns, multiple-caliber bullets, marijuana, other controlled substances and related drug paraphernalia.

Four of the suspects range in age from 19 to 22 and the other two are juveniles, police said.
