The Lee County Sheriff's Department arrested a man over the weekend who is accused of shooting his own brother in the back and face.

Mark Casey Eller, 26, of Smiths was taken into custody and charged with one count of attempted murder and one count of shooting into an occupied dwelling.

Officials say witnesses informed them that the two men had an on-going verbal disagreement over family possessions related to their late father's estate.

The victim, Ronnie Charles Eller, Jr., 31, was found lying on a bathroom floor inside a home in the 2700 Block of Lee Road 250 in Salem. Deputies on scene reported that Eller, Jr. was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the upper back, as well as at least one shot to the face. 

Eller, Jr.'s girlfriend and a 2-year-old child were in the residence at the time of the shooting, according to investigators, but they were not injured.

The victim was rushed to Columbus Regional Medical Center where he's listed in critical but stable condition following surgery. He's being treated in the Intensive Care Unit.

Within an hour of the shooting, Lee County Sheriff's Deputies arrested the victim's brother and transported him to the county detention facility. Mark Casey Eller is being held on a $75,000 bond.
