LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A Las Vegas teen accused of shooting his brother in the head was found incompetent to stand trial on murder charges Friday.

Mary Ann Price of Clark County Courts said Turner Bronson, 15, was ordered by a judge to restoration treatment at Lake's Crossing in order to stand trial at a later date.

The teen was arrested on May 22 after police were called to a shooting at a home on Arcadia Bluff Court, near Robindale Road and Tenaya.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, the boy was suspected of shooting and killing his 18-year-old brother, Clayton Bronson.

An arrest report on the case stated the two had been fighting recently. Turner Bronson also was angry about being forced into a behavioral camp, police said.

In documents, the teens' mother told police she heard a gunshot during an argument between the two. Clayton Bronson was initially wounded in the stomach, police stated.

In the report, the mother said Turner Bronson then shot Clayton Bronson in the head with a black revolver while she called 911. The 15-year-old hid the gun behind a couch pillow before police arrived, according to police.

Turner Bronson was booked into Clark County Juvenile Detention Center on a count of murder with a deadly weapon.
