Police have identified the two brothers who were struck in Sunday's drive-by shooting outside North Boulevard Homes.

His brother, Braden Brown, 26, was also shot and is expected to survive. Police described him Monday as stable.

Police say the brothers were standing outside, throwing a football back and forth when they were shot. Police think the attack arose from an ongoing dispute. They continued to investigate Monday.
