( 4UMF NEWS ) Man Shoots Brother To Death:

A North Carolina man fatally shot his brother after authorities say he mistook him for an intruder — just hours after cops responded to the home for a domestic disturbance, according to reports.

Wilmington police say Ali (Al) Dastmalchi, 65, fired a handgun into the chest of his younger brother, Vahid Dastmalchi, believing he was someone else trying to break into their house last Friday.

Police arrived to the scene after 12:40 a.m. Vahid (George) Dastmalchi, 63, was taken to the hospital, where he later died, according to the Wilmington Star-News.

A news release said Ali Dastmalchi heard the sound of breaking glass and went to the front door to investigate. That’s where he claims he saw “someone lunging at him with a spiked object in his hand.”

A 911 call obtained by ABC affiliate WWAY features Ali Dastmalchi saying his brother tried to use a “garden tool” as a weapon and charged at him. That’s when he claims he fired his gun.

But when he turned the porch light on, he said he realized it was his own kin. The dispatcher asked him where Vahid Dastmalchi was shot.

“I think on the right side, on his chest,” Ali Dastmalchi said. “Please send police dispatch, somebody.”

Just hours earlier, police said, they were at the house for a domestic disturbance call and found the brothers arguing. Vahid Dastmalchi was taken to the hospital that night for “severe intoxication,” but was released, WWAY reported.

Vahid Dastmalchi had incurred a number of alcohol-related offenses in the past, according to North Carolina officials. He was convicted of driving while intoxicated in 1996, 2000 and 2004, records show.

North Carolina law, meanwhile, allows people to use deadly force if they feel their lives are being threatened on their own property.

Wilmington police said Friday that charges hadn’t been filed against the older Dastmalchi.
