MILLBROOK, AL (WSFA) -

Millbrook Police confirm a fight between two brothers turned fatal outside a Millbrook Mexican restaurant around 10:00 Friday night.

Marion Edward Pitts Jr., 57, a Deatsville resident, is charged with murder in the death of his brother, William Grady Pitts, 54, of Mobile.

The incident began with a physical altercation outside Habanero's Mexican Restaurant. At some point, the argument escalated and police say Pitts pulled a gun and shot his brother in the head.

There's no indication at this time what the men were arguing about, but investigators believe alcohol is a possible factor in the shooting.

The investigation is ongoing, and authorities are looking into whether or not the shooting could have been in self defense.
