Shortly after 4:30 p.m. yesterday, Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the 2500 block of Warrego Way regarding a call of two men involved in a fight. Information from a male caller said that a neighbor had come to his home asking him to call 9-1-1 because his brother had assaulted him.
Deputies arrived at the location and observed a male adult waiting outside in the driveway of a residence. After detaining this subject, deputies entered the home and found an adult male who had been shot in the upper body. Paramedics arrived on scene and pronounced the victim deceased from his injuries.
