The man who was arrested in April for shooting his brother has been indicted for murder by a McLennan County Grand Jury.

Waco police said Stanley Brooks shot his brother and then barricaded himself inside a home.

Police were called to the home on Pryor Street just before 9 p.m. in reference to a shooting that had occurred. 

Gregory Brooks, 66, called police and told them his brother, Stanley Brooks, 65, had shot him in the stomach and was still inside the home, according to police.

Police said Stanley barricaded himself inside the home when they arrived.

SWAT teams and negotiators were able to get the man out of the house about 11:20 p.m., police said.

Gregory was taken to Scott & White Medical Center Hillcrest in critical condition and underwent emergency surgery. He died after the surgery.

Stanley was also taken to the hospital for minor injuries he suffered during a fight with Gregory.

Once given the all clear to leave the hospital, Stanley was transported to the McLennan County Jail. 

His bond is set at $1,000,000.

Police were told the two men had been arguing all day.

The case is under investigation.
