A family feud in Los Angeles turned deadly as a man faces murder charges in the shooting death of his brother and his brother's friend.

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, police responded to a call around 4 p.m. about a double shooting at a home in the 3300 block of East Hunter and Concord streets.

Gustavo Lopez, 29, and Rafael Aguilar were found shot to death. Lopez was later identified as the shooter's brother.

The suspect identified as 25-year-old Israel Lopez was found sitting on the couch.

Two women were home at the time. One of the women heard the shots and reported the shooting to the Los Angeles Police Department.
