Previous Coverage: 

Sheriff's deputies were called to a shooting in Spokane Valley near 31st and Vercler Tuesday afternoon. 

The investigation is still ongoing, but we are told it started around 4:30pm when two men got into an argument, and during the confrontation one brother shot the other in the stomach. 

The victim was taken to the hospital and we are told he does have life-threatening injuries. 

The suspect has been detained and a weapon has been recovered. 

Detectives do not believe there are any other outstanding suspects.

At this point it's unclear what the argument was about.
