Brother charged in Oxford Circle murder

Phil­adelphia isn’t al­ways the City of Broth­erly Love. Last Sat­urday, an Ox­ford Circle man shot and killed his older broth­er dur­ing a quar­rel at the home they shared.

Po­lice went to a house on the 1000 block of Levick St. at 6:35 a.m. and found Al­len Young, 56, un­re­spons­ive in­side the front door with a single gun­shot wound of the head. Para­med­ics at the scene pro­nounced him dead nine minutes later, po­lice said.

Young lived at the house with his broth­er, 55-year-old Robert Young. Po­lice ar­res­ted Robert at 7:50 that morn­ing on the 7300 block of Lawndale Ave. Au­thor­it­ies did not dis­close what led them to im­plic­ate Robert Young in the slay­ing. He was charged with murder and re­lated of­fenses. ••
