MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis man was charged with manslaughter after the shooting death of his brother on Monday.

According to police, Darrian Culp and Kendrick Culp were arguing over a vehicle in the 3400 block of Royal Wood Drive on Monday. The argument apparently escalated resulting in Darrian Culp pulling out a gun and shooting his brother once.

He then fled the scene, witnesses said.

Neighbor Shawn Neely says he heard two gunshots.

"Well, one brother needed some help. The other ended up giving him a battery and it didn't work, and he shot him over the battery."

Kendrick Culp was taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

A short time later, Darrian Culp reportedly turned himself in to police. He was charged with voluntary manslaughter and employment of a firearm.

Neighbors say a toddler was inside of the house during the shooting, but a relative came and took the child away.
