MANITOWOC - A murder investigation is underway in Manitowoc, where police say a man killed his brother with a shotgun over the weekend.
Manitowoc police are recommending first-degree intentional homicide charges in the case.
The shooting happened Sunday morning at a home where the two lived.
Robert Sullivan had been living at his deceased parents' house for about seven years. Police say Robert's younger brother, Carey Sullivan, had recently moved in. Now, Carey is dead and his brother Robert is behind bars.
Police say 65-year-old Robert Sullivan called 911 after an argument turned deadly at a Manitowoc home Sunday morning.
"Our joint dispatch received a call from a man who told them he shot his brother," said Tony Dick, Manitowoc Police Chief.
Manitowoc Police Chief Tony Dick says officers arrived and arrested Robert Sullivan. Police say 62-year-old Carey Sullivan was dead in the living room.
"The weapon that we've been able to recover was a single-shot 20-gauge shotgun, and that is consistent with wounds that were found on the deceased," said Dick.
Manitowoc police say the victim had been living at the house for two to three weeks. Police say the Sullivan brothers owned the house as part of their parents' estate.
"It was an ongoing dispute about finances, but part of the parents' estate, rolls into money and finances," said Dick.
Police say they have had contact with the brothers before. The Manitowoc County Jail provided FOX 11 Carey Sullivan's mug shot from a previous case.
The District Attorney's office has yet to file a criminal complaint. Police are recommending charges of first-degree intentional homicide.
"We do have admissions, we do have a confession, but we have to verify all those statements, and try to do our best job to tie up all the loose ends," said Dick.
Some neighbors told FOX 11 off-camera they saw tensions rising between the brothers. Others say the shooting comes as a surprise.
"Many of the people that live here have lived here since the neighborhood's inception. I just think everyone's shocked and saddened, sad for the family," said Connie Borys of Manitowoc.
An autopsy for Carey Sullivan was scheduled for Monday. Robert Sullivan is expected to be in court Tuesday for a bail hearing.
