In Pontiac, two brothers are recovering and the man accused of shooting the both of them in their legs has turned himself in, police said.

The shooting took place Tuesday at 8 p.m., on the 100 block of West Yale, said a statement from the Oakland County Sheriff's Office, the police agency that serves Pontiac. The area is south of Walton and west of Baldwin.

Police arrived at Yale to find the men lying in the street, shot, and were told that the shooter had fled the scene. 

While one victim was too severely injured to talk to police, the other told police that he and his brother were walking on Yale when they got into an argument with a man on a front porch.

Three hours after the shooting, the suspect, a 26-year-old man, turned himself in at the Pontiac substation. He's at the Oakland County Jail, pending charges.
