Brian Scott Orloske, 40, shot dead in St. Paul. Brother arrested


St. Paul police have arrested Brian Scott Orloske's brother on suspicion of killing him.

Police were called to the 1300 block of Reaney Avenue at around 11:03 p.m. on Saturday. When they arrived, they found 40-year-old Orloske, of Houlton, Wis., shot in the head. He was alone in the house with his brother. Orloske was taken to Regions Hospital, where he died a short time later.

Police arrested Eric John Orloske, 38, of St. Paul, on probable cause of murder. Police are investigating a potential motive, and say that the men had been arguing that night.

This is the second time this year in St. Paul that a brother has been arrested for killing his brother. George Edward Watson was charged with killing his brother last month. Watson was angry that the bathtub had overflowed.

This is the sixth homicide in St. Paul this year.
