Boy Shoots Brother, Charged with Attempted Homicide
It wasn't a case of "brotherly love" for two Gainesville siblings as police say two brothers got into a fight and the older brother received the worse end of it.
An investigation revealed that a juvenile suspect had gotten into an altercation with his older brother at Northwood Pines on northwest 29th street in Gainesville.
GPD says the suspect shot his brother in the arm and then smashed his phone so he wouldn't call 911.
The suspect left while the victim had a neighbor drive him to UF Health.
Police say the suspect went to University Terrace Apartments on southwest 34th street, where he was caught with the gun in his waistband and arrested.
The brother suffered non-life threatening injuries.
The juvenile has been charged with attempted homicide.
