Cops: Pelion man killed brother over domino game

PELION, SC (AP) Lexington County deputies say a 34-year-old man shot his younger brother to death in the Pelion home they shared after they argued over a game of dominos.

Investigators said Robert Banks Jr. ran from the house after shooting his brother in the head around 10 p.m. Friday, but he was arrested a few hours later and admitted to the shooting.

Deputies say Banks argued with his 33-year-old brother Bobby Banks about the game before going to his bedroom and getting a .45-caliber handgun.

Robert Banks is charged with murder and is awaiting a bond hearing at the Lexington County jail. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney.
