Texas Man Held After Brother Slain Following Wreck

Deputies say an argument at a Houston-area home after a truck hit a fence has led to a man accused of killing his brother.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office says the shooting happened early Friday in the town of Pleak.

Deputies responded to a report that a 64-year-old homeowner shot his 52-year-old sibling after the younger man's truck damaged the fence.

Lt. Glenn Norrell says the brothers apparently began to fight when the driver, who allegedly was intoxicated, refused to fix the fence. The younger brother was shot dead at the scene.

The older brother has been detained pending charges. Further details were not immediately available.
