PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Peoria say a man shot his brother three times before turning the gun on himself.

Authorities say 36-year-old Sunny Sanchez shot his 45-year-old brother during an argument about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday in an apartment complex near 99th Avenue and Beardsley.

Police say Sanchez then went inside a bedroom and shot himself. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital while his brother remains in critical condition.

The name of Sanchez’s older brother wasn’t immediately released by police.

They say three other people were in the home during the shooting but weren’t injured.

According to investigators, Sanchez lived in the apartment and the older brother and their mother were visiting from out of town.

They say the brothers may have been arguing about a previous event involving Sanchez’s girlfriend.
