An argument over living conditions between two men in their 50s at their home resulted in one brother's death and the other's arrest Tuesday morning.

The fatal shooting took place about 2:10 a.m., on the 1100 block of Holcomb, said Officer Holly Lowe, a Detroit police spokeswoman. That's just off East Jefferson.

As the 50-somethings argued, the older brother, a 59-year-old man, pulled out a handgun and allegedly shot his younger brother, a 54-year-old man. The victim died at the scene.

The suspect was found a short distance away from the scene and arrested.

Tuesday morning's incident is the 10th homicide in Detroit since Saturday morning.
