Detroit police are investigating after an uncle is accused of shooting and killing his nephew on the city's west side Thursday evening.

According to police, 48-year-old Anthony Johnson got into an argument with 24-year-old Brandon Jackson. That's when Johnson went to get a gun and shot Jackson, killing him.

Police say they both lived together, and although family isn't talking about the details, they believe the shooting had to do with one of the men wanting to move out.

Johnson is in custody, according to police.
