FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) - Police arrested a 30-year-old man in connection with the fatal shooting of his 28-year-old brother in Farmington Hills over the weekend.

At about 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, police responded to the 33000 block of Saratoga Circle near 11 Mile and Halsted roads. Upon arrival, officers found the victim in critical condition. The victim was taken to a hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Police say a woman called 911 reporting that her sons were arguing, and one of the men shot the other. The woman reported finding her younger son with a gunshot wound to the chest.

An autopsy on Sunday determined the death as a homicide.

Police say the suspect fled the home. He was arrested the following day near 11 Mile Road and Groesbeck.
