Chicago police uncovered the alleged arsenal of an Englewood street gang during a raid of a South Side home. Police seized 22 weapons in all. They included handguns, semi-automatic machine pistols and assault rifles. Officers also found hundreds of rounds of ammo.

The arsenal was discovered when officers, armed with a search warrant, raided a home near 66th and Hermitage. They arrested one man who they say is an alleged gang member.

Officers hope the seizure will curtail the gun violence in the neighborhood.
