LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Las Vegas Metro arrested a man who they say shot and killed his brother in a dispute they say was about television.  

According to a report issued yesterday, Eric Perry was arrested Tuesday following the shooting at an apartment complex near Flamingo and Fort Apache.  

Police say that the two got into an argument leading up to the shooting.  Investigators say the borh=ithers' mom was getting ready for work when she heard her two sons arguing about the television. That was followed shortly afterward by the sounds of gunfire.

When police arrived, they found the body of Perry's brother with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Perry faces an open murder charge, but the arrest report says he denies shooting anyone.

Perry is being held without bail. His next court appearance is scheduled for Friday.
