Suspect in fatal shooting is victim's older brother

- A  man in his 20s was gunned down on Detroit's west side Monday.

The suspected shooter is the victim's older brother in the 11000 block of Heydon Street near Plymouth Road.

Police got the call at about 3 p.m. and when officers arrived at the family home, they found the victim dead inside from a gunshot wound.

One officer told FOX 2 that there had been an ongoing dispute where the younger brother had been getting into trouble. His older brother went there to speak to him and at some point a gun got involved.

A neighbor said that the incident was "very hard."

"A lot of our younger black men are disappearing," she said.

Police are still at the house, while the victim's family declined comment.
