A 56-year-old man fatally shot his brother and wounded another man Wednesday at a home in Benbrook, police said.
The suspect, John Conroy, was barricaded in the home for almost four hours before surrendering to officers at about 3 p.m. Officials have not released the name of his brother.
Police responded to a call in the 200 block of San Angelo Avenue at about 11:45 a.m., said Lt. Arvin Campbell, police spokesman. They found one man wounded in the leg in the front yard and found another man dead in the back yard, Campbell said.
