Authorities: Mississippi Man fatally shoots younger brother

POPLARVILLE, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi man accused of fatally shooting his younger brother has been arrested.

News outlets report 60-year-old Steven Stuart was arrested Tuesday night and charged with murder in the death of 53-year-old John Stuart.

Pearl River County Sheriff's Department Chief Investigator Marc Ogden says deputies were responding to a welfare check Tuesday morning when they found John Stuart dead in his Poplarville home. Ogden says John Stuart appeared to have several gunshot wounds.

Authorities believe there was an argument or altercation before the shooting. Further details have not been released.

It's unclear if Steven Stuart has a lawyer.
