Daniel Dye shot and killed his brother, police said.
Police have not released much information on the shooting that happened in Florida City a few days after Hurricane Irma tore through.
They said the two men got into an argument the morning of Sept. 15 and Dye, 21, pulled out a gun and shot his brother in the stomach. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police said Dye’s mother and another witness gave police a statement.
Never miss a local story.
Dye fled the scene after the shooting and was arrested four days later on Sept. 19. He was charged with second-degree murder and denied bond. Police said Dye was identified by his mother and the witness.
By Thursday police had not disclosed Dye’s brother’s name. Records at the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner’s Office show a 26-year-old man named Leon Dye was transported there on the same morning as the shooting.
The medical examiner’s office confirmed the shooting as a homicide.
