LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say an 18-year-old is dead and his younger brother faces a murder charge as a juvenile after a fatal shooting at a home in southwest Las Vegas.

The Clark County coroner says Clayton Wesley Bronson was found dead after police were called a little before 9 p.m. Thursday to the home on Arcadia Bluff Court. That’s near Tenaya Way and Robindale Road.

A cause and manner of death weren’t immediately made public.

Police aren’t releasing the identity of the boy who was arrested due to his age.

Investigators say a verbal argument escalated into a physical confrontation that ended with gunshots.

Police say the younger brother was being held at the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center pending an appearance before a judge.
