Chicago police allege that Larry Peters, 63, shot his brother Ronald Peters, 50, dead in cold blood on Jan. 26 with a shotgun.
Both brothers lived in a duplex home in Englewood, Chicago. Police say Ronald Peters, who lived on the bottom floor, asked his brother Larry to be quieter when moving around as it was disturbing him. Apparently Larry was not quiet enough for his brother, and an argument ensued.
Larry Peters, according to The Daily Mail, confronted his brother with a shotgun. A struggle ensued as Ronald Peters attempted to take the weapon away from his elder sibling, but he was unsuccessful. Ronald Peters' daughter was home during the attack and heard her father scream in pain after a loud blast.
After the initial shooting Ronald Peters attempted to escape, crawling out of the home into the street. It is then, witnesses say, Larry Peters perused his target, raised his weapon and fired, striking his already wounded brother in the back.
It is then alleged that Larry Peters then called police and admitted on the phone to shooting his brother, and asked to be arrested. He said, "I just shot my brother and I want to turn myself in."
Ronald Peters was still alive when police arrived on the scene and was transported to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital where he eventually succumbed to his injuries and died.
Larry Peters is currently being held in Cook County jail without bail.
