The report said the two brothers were challenging Andrew to a fight over “perceived disrespect.” Andrew did agree to physically fight Andrew and while that was occurring, multiple gunshots were heard.

A Las Vegas Metropolitan Police air unit followed the vehicle the brothers left the scene in and a patrol stop was made. The report said police found two handguns in plain view.

Von White was transported to the hospital for treatment.

The arrest report said the brothers approached the other men with the intent to fight while being in possession of guns and while the two other men attempted to leave the apartment complex, the brothers continued to challenge Andrew to fight.
