Fort Lauderdale, FL (July 17, 2019) – Police have arrested two brothers after they allegedly killed their neighbor for reasons that are still being investigated.
Sunrise Police have arrested the two brothers on first-degree murder charges, who have since been identified as 41-year-old Arktabian Dwayne Davis and 37-year-old Christopher Davis.
According to police, the two brothers had been engaged in a fight with their neighbor at his home in the 5800 block of Northwest 19th Street on the Fourth of July. When the argument was taking place, one of the brothers fired off a gun, shooting the neighbor twice in the back and killing him.
Police arrested Christopher at the scene but his brother fled. A few days later, Arktabian turned himself into police when a flyer for his arrest was issued.
The investigation continues.
