Brothers Gun CollageThat's where a neighbor told CBS 6 that two brothers got into a fight and that the older brother allegedly opened fire on his younger brother.

“We heard one shot. They say it was  more than one shot, but the next thing we knew police and rescue were everywhere,” said neighbor Nancy Reynolds.

Lt. Jonathan Miller told CBS 6 that when officers arrived they found a 23-year-old man shot in the nose and neck.
