Man shoots brother dead after quarrel

A man in Tambunan, Sabah, shot and killed his younger brother after they got into a quarrel on their way home from a wedding feast, reported Kosmo!

Keningau police confirmed that Ronnie Linus, 25, was killed at about 3.19am on Sunday upon returning from the feast at a nearby village.

Police found his body sprawled in a pool of blood, clad only in his underwear.

"Investigations showed that the victim was shot five times with one bullet piercing through his body," said Keningau district police chief Deputy Supt Douglas Nyeging Taong.

Linus's father, he said, had accused the victim's 44-year-old brother - as yet unnamed - of having shot him with a homemade rifle.

Douglas said the two brothers were believed to have gotten into an argument on the way home.

Police later arrested Linus's brother and found the murder weapon in a forest some 300m from the crime scene.
