A 23-year-old Tennessee man is in custody after he allegedly shot and killed his brother on New Year’s Eve.
Police said Jarvis C. Suggs shot his brother, 28-year-old Gregory Suggs, multiple times in a New Year’s Eve murder in the 4600 block of Highland Avenue in Chattanooga.
23-year-old Jarvis Suggs was charged with criminal homicide.
Witnesses said Jarvis Suggs said he didn’t care if Gregory was his brother. He then pulled out a gun from a jacket pocket and began shooting.
The witnesses said as Gregory Suggs lay dying that Jarvis Suggs apologized to him multiple times.
Gregory Suggs was found by police lying on his back. He succumbed to his injuries after arriving at the hospital.
