A 17-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of his older brother, Visalia police said Monday.
Adolfo Vasquez, 24, was shot Friday at a southeast Visalia home and died at Kaweah Delta Medical Center.
The name of the younger brother who allegedly shot and killed Vasquez is not being released because of he's a juvenile, police Sgt. Ozzie Dominguez said. He is being held on one charge of murder.
Police said the boy called 911 and said his brother shot himself himself, but patrol officers were told differing stories about what happened and called homicide detectives.
Detectives found the gun used to shoot Vasquez, Dominguez said, adding that possible motives are under investigation.
Police have been called to the home in the 1300 block of South Lovers Lane, near Tulare Avenue, several times on family disputes, Dominguez said.
