Seattle Police are investigating a homicide in Seattle’s Beacon Hill neighborhood Monday morning.

The incident involved two brothers, a 38-year-old and a 40-year-old man, according to KIRO Newsradio’s Sam Campbell.

The 40-year-old man was shot and killed. Police have the 38-year-old man in custody.

“They quickly identified a suspect and that suspect was taken into custody,” Seattle Police spokesman Shawn Wiesmiller said.

The brothers’ mother called 9-1-1 after a disturbance.

“He just went around the neighborhood yelling with a bat in his hand,” Ledi, who lives in Beacon Hill. “Minutes later, I saw the police come by.”

We don’t know exactly what happened before the shooting.
