A man was arrested on suspicion of murder Thursday after he reportedly shot his brother to death outside a residence in the Mid-Wilshire area and then barricaded himself inside for six hours before surrendering to a SWAT team.
Edward Kaddis, 61, surrendered about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, ending a standoff at his residence in the 1000 block of Crenshaw Boulevard, near Country Club Drive, police said.
Paramedics were sent to the house about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in response to a request for medical assistance and discovered a gunshot victim, identified by police as 63-year-old William Kaddis.
William Kaddis was taken to California Hospital, where he later died from a gunshot to the head, police said.
Officers said William Kaddis went to visit his brother on Wednesday afternoon after a relative told him Edward had been feeling sick, authorities said.
