A sheriff says two brothers who were in Bevil Oaks to attend a family funeral died when the pair argued and one fatally shot the other, then killed himself.

Jefferson County Sheriff Mitch Woods told KFDM-TV that alcohol was involved in the shootings around 1 a.m. Tuesday at a residence where their sister lives.

Woods said investigators are trying to determine what led to the argument in which one man pulled a handgun and shot his brother.

Woods said their sister called 911 and she was on the phone with a dispatcher when another shot was fired, in which the second man killed himself.

Names of the brothers were not immediately released.

Bevil Oaks is a town of about 1,300, located 70 miles northeast of Houston.
