AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW)- Two brothers fighting over the same woman turned violent early Sunday morning.
At 3:00 a.m. Richmond County deputies responded to a call on Princess Court. The argument between the brothers escalated and 24 year old Armando Mata shot his brother 21 year old Jose Mata in the chest. Jose Mata was taken to GRU.
His brother Armando fled the scene, and a little over an hour later was seen driving on Flowing Wells Road by a Columbia County deputy, and was taken into custody.
Deputies say the investigation is still on going, and we'll have more information as it becomes available.
